On a seemingly ordinary day, 17-year-old Lia Haddock hears news that will change her life forever: 300 men, women, and children living at a research facility in Limetown, Tennessee, have disappeared without a trace. Among the missing is Emile Haddock, Lia’s uncle. What happened to the people of Limetown? It’s all anyone can talk about. Except Lia’s parents, who refuse to discuss what might have happened there. They refuse, even, to discuss anything to do with Emile.

This book broadens the world of the podcast. It gives you the backstory of Leah and Emile. Considering that the creators are film students, I think they did pretty well as this is not their primary medium. However, it does take some time for the story to get going and neither character is very likeable. I'm actually surprised how cold they ended up making Leah. Overall, if you got hooked by the podcast and you want to know more about this world, go for it. If you haven't listened to it and you have no interest in podcasts/TV show when it comes out, I'd say skip it.
