From Daphne Benedis-Grab, author of I Know Your Secret and I Know You're Lying, comes another gripping middle-grade thriller.
Nicky has disappeared!
Oliva, Leo, and Gracie--three seventh graders who have very little in common except for how much they dislike Nicky, the school bully--were the last ones to see him. They are sure that there are clues the police are overlooking. And they each have their own secret reason for needing to find him as soon as possible.
As they investigate, they discover that things are more complicated than they had seemed. Nicky’s victims made a plan to get revenge on him--a plan that’s gone terribly wrong. Can they find out where Nicky is before it’s too late?
Mystery, thrilling twists, and spot-on friendship dynamics combine to make this a page-turning read and a thoughtful look at bullying, revenge, and the true meaning of punishment and forgiveness.
