The End of Everything by Megan Abbott
I read about this book in the context of reading another more recently published book, and while I am not sure why I wanted to read another book about a teenager who disappears, I did. Evie and Lizzie are 13 year old girls who are best friends. When Evie disappears, Lizzie is the only one who has any clue as to what might have happened to her. She remembers a car that acted oddly, she disclosed some cigarette butts that Evie had found in her backyard, and she quickly becomes the focus of the investigation. But she is not entirely honest about What she knows. And in the end, it turns out that she is not the only one who has secrets. Every character in the story has big secrets, all of which come to light at the end of the book, and they are big big secrets indeed. Well written.
