The Last Place on Earth

ALAN Pick, April/May 2016

“Themes of loyalty, friendship, and family bonds are the foundations of a winning story filled with small, poignant moments that, against a background of uncertainty, don’t feel small at all.”–Publishers Weekly

“its original premise and crisp, unpredictable characters are a compelling reason to pick it up.” —Booklist

“Each page turned offers some new twist … a must-read!” —Teen Ink

indie

Daisy and Henry are best friends, and they know all each other’s secrets. Or, so Daisy thinks, until she wakes up one morning to find that Henry and his family have disappeared without a trace. Daisy suspects Henry’s disappearance is connected to their seriously awkward meeting the night before, but then she finds a note from Henry, containing just the words “SAVE ME.”

Deeply worried, Daisy convinces her unemployed brother to take her on a rescue mission into the California mountains. As they begin to home in on Henry’s exact location, they also start to find some disturbing clues… clues that call into question everything Daisy believes she knows about her friend. Why is he so hard to find? What kind of trouble is he in, exactly? And most importantly, who is actually saving whom?
