Description
Jonah and Joe are best friends. One day, Jonah runs after a fire engine and is never seen again. Months go by and gradually people start to forget Jonah, except Joe, who refuses to believe he is dead. When Joe befriends a woman on an isolated farm, his life pitches into danger as he realises her terrible and terrifying secret.

This page-turning thriller is great for mixed ability class study. It tackles the nature of friendship and loyalty, loss and bereavement, the relevance of alternative lifestyles, abduction and media coverage. Includes cleverly crafted allegory and rich descriptive writing. Age 12+
