(From the publisher):
On a sunny spring morning, sixteen-year-old Ethan Shumway walks down his gravel driveway, turns the bend, and vanishes without a trace. As the police search for clues, Ethan's devastated family and friends - from his parents and four siblings to the older woman who was more than a teacher to Ethan - grapple for answers in the teenager's enigmatic life. As this elusive mystery slowly weaves its way into the fabric of the family, Ethan's younger brother, Philip, becomes the last, most stubborn searcher of all: a boy caught between the power and the fragility of youth, between the bonds and fissures of family, searching for understanding in the unbearable presence of loss.
