A stunning novel that examines the price of loyalty, the burden of regret, the meaning of salvation, and the sacrifices we make for those we love, told in the voices of two unforgettable women linked by a decades-old family mystery at a picturesque lake house. In 1935, six-year-old Emily Evans vanishes from her family’s vacation home on a remote Minnesota lake. Her disappearance destroys the family—her father commits suicide, and her mother and two older sisters spend the rest of their lives at the lake house, keeping a decades-long vigil for the lost child. Sixty years later, Lucy, the quiet and watchful middle sister, lives in the lake house alone. Before her death, she writes the story of that devastating summer in a notebook that she leaves, along with the house, to the only person who might care: her grandniece, Justine. For Justine, the lake house offers freedom and stability—a way to escape her manipulative boyfriend and give her daughters the home she never had. But the long Minnesota winter is just beginning. The house is cold and dilapidated. The dark, silent lake is isolated and eerie. Her only neighbor is a strange old man who seems to know more about the summer of 1935 than he’s telling. Soon Justine’s troubled oldest daughter becomes obsessed with Emily’s disappearance, her mother arrives to steal her inheritance, and the man she left launches a dangerous plan to get her back. In a house haunted by the sorrows of the women who came before her, Justine must overcome their tragic legacy if she hopes to save herself and her children.

Wendy has long heard the family legend -- madness strikes the Darling women at a certain age, traditionally after romance visits in the form of an overgrown boy. The Darling girl will fall in love, the boy will desert, and the girl is left on her heels, heartbroken and flirting ever after with lunacy's lure. Wendy knows she should be grateful for her childhood adventure, but instead she finds herself adrift; resenting the heartache-turned-eccentricity of her mother; envious of the oddball antics of her Great-Nana; and consumed by the mystery of her grandmother Jane, whose disappearance following her own youthful romance remains unsolved. When Wendy falls in love with Freeman, an exuberant and irreverent man-child himself, she finds herself perpetuating the pattern she thought she had missed. And then along comes her daughter, Berry, the precocious but sullen child with the eyes of a sage. When it is Berry's time to go off to The Neverland, Wendy, like so many mothers before her, questions who she has become. Is she 'barking mad'? Is Berry? Wendy's journey to self-realization takes flight from the themes suggested in the classic novel Peter Pan. Fox's dazzling prose and elegant insights into love and loss make this story universal; the characters and their heartache make this novel deeply personal. The Lost Girls contemplates the contradictory human yearnings for freedom and safety, flight and stability in a moving and ultimately uplifting story of motherhood, love, and reenchantment that speaks to women of all ages.

With their thirtieth birthdays looming, Jen, Holly, and Amanda are feeling the pressure to hit certain milestones—score the big promotion, find a soul mate, have 2.2 kids.

Traveling 60,000 miles across four continents, Jen, Holly, and Amanda push themselves far outside their comfort zones to embrace every adventure. Ultimately, theirs is a story of true friendship—a bond forged by sharing beds and backpacks, enduring exotic illnesses, trekking across mountains, and standing by one another through heartaches, whirlwind romances, and everything in the world in between.

“Rother is the next Ann Rule.” —Gregg Olsen Chelsea King was a popular high school senior, an outstanding achiever determined to make a difference. Fourteen-year-old Amber Dubois loved books and poured her heart into the animals she cared for. Treasured by all who knew them, both girls disappeared in San Diego County, just eight miles and one year apart. The families’ anguish galvanized the community and captivated the media. A desperate search led authorities to John Albert Gardner, a brutal predator, convicted sex offender hiding in plain sight—and a complex man whose own mother, a psychiatric nursing professional, failed to see the signs of trouble. Ultimately, Gardner shared a prison unit with Charles Manson. In 2010, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Chelsea's Law: anyone convicted of certain sex offenses against a child in California would get life in prison without parole. Based on Pulitzer-nominated author Caitlin Rother’s exclusive access, Lost Girls is an incisive, heartbreaking true-life thriller that strikes at our deepest fears. “A a cautionary tale and a horror story, done superbly.” —Los Angeles Times “A terrifying portrait of a man who was sweet and cuddly one day and a crazed killer the next.” —San Diego Reader “Gripping . . . chilling . . . a must-read.” —Sue Russell “Boldly dissects how a boy with psychological problems formed into a man indifferent to his monstrous acts.” —Katherine Ramsland “Caitlin Rother stirs up the lethal stew of family dysfunction, mental illness, substance abuse and deadly psychopathology. . . . Frank and riveting.” —Diane Fanning Includes dramatic photos

Firsts meets 'Saved!' in this standout feminist contemporary that deftly balances humor and heart as it takes a meaningful look at virginity and what it means to lose it. When CeCe’s born-again ex-boyfriend dumps her after they had sex, she follows him to Jesus camp in order to win him back. Problem: She knows nothing about Jesus. But her best friend Paul does. He accompanies CeCe to camp, and the plan—God’s or CeCe’s—goes immediately awry when her ex shows up with a new girlfriend, a True Believer at that. Scrambling to save face, CeCe ropes Paul into faking a relationship. But as deceptions stack up, she questions whether her ex is the nice guy she thought. Maybe their romance was as phony as her beliefs? And what about her strange new feelings for Paul—is this love, lust, or an illusion born of heartbreak? To figure it out, she’ll have to confront the reasons she chased her ex to camp in the first place, including the truth about the night she lost her virginity.

New York Times Bestseller • Now a Netflix Film “Rich, tragic...monumental . . . true-crime reporting at its best.”—Washington Post The bestselling account of the lives of five young women whose fates converged in the perplexing case of the Long Island Serial Killer. Now updated, with a new epilogue by the author. One late spring evening in 2010, Shannan Gilbert—after running through the oceanfront community of Oak Beach screaming for her life—went missing. No one who had heard of her disappearance thought much about what had happened to the twenty-four-year-old: she was a Craigslist escort who had been fleeing a scene—of what, no one could be sure. The Suffolk County police, too, seemed to have paid little attention—until seven months later, when an unexpected discovery in a bramble alongside a nearby highway turned up four bodies, all evenly spaced, all wrapped in burlap. But none of them Shannan’s. There was Maureen Brainard-Barnes, last seen at Penn Station in Manhattan three years earlier, and Melissa Barthelemy, last seen in the Bronx in 2009. There was Megan Waterman, last seen leaving a hotel in Hauppauge, Long Island, just a month after Shannon’s disappearance in 2010, and Amber Lynn Costello, last seen leaving a house in West Babylon a few months later that same year. Like Shannan, all four women were petite, in their twenties, and had come from out of town to work as escorts, and they all had advertised on Craigslist and its competitor, Backpage. Lost Girls is a portrait of unsolved murders in an idyllic part of America, of the underside of the Internet, and of the secrets we keep without admitting to ourselves that we keep them. Long considered “one of the best true-crime books of all time” (Time), this edition includes a new epilogue that speaks to developments in the case, including the shocking fate of Mari Gilbert, Shannan’s mother, for whom this case became the crusade of a lifetime.

Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author In the tradition of Daphne du Maurier, Shari Lapena, and Michelle Richmond comes a new thriller from the bestselling author of The Lake of Dead Languages—a twisty, harrowing story set at a prestigious prep school in which one woman’s carefully hidden past might destroy her future. Tess has worked hard to keep her past buried, where it belongs. Now she’s the wife to a respected professor at an elite boarding school, where she also teaches. Her seventeen-year-old son, Rudy, whose dark moods and complicated behavior she’s long worried about, seems to be thriving: he has a lead role in the school play and a smart and ambitious girlfriend. Tess tries not to think about the mistakes she made eighteen years ago, and mostly, she succeeds. And then one more morning she gets a text at 2:50 AM: it’s Rudy, asking for help. When Tess picks him up she finds him drenched and shivering, with a dark stain on his sweatshirt. Four hours later, Tess gets a phone call from the Haywood school headmistress: Lila Zeller, Rudy’s girlfriend, has been found dead on the beach, not far from where Tess found Rudy just hours before. As the investigation into Lila’s death escalates, Tess finds her family attacked on all sides. What first seemed like a tragic accidental death is turning into something far more sinister, and not only is Tess’s son a suspect but her husband is a person of interest too. But Lila’s death isn’t the first blemish on Haywood’s record, and the more Tess learns about Haywood’s fabled history, the more she realizes that not all skeletons will stay safely locked in the closet.

From the award-winning author of For Today I Am a Boy, a gripping and deeply felt novel about a group of young girls at a remote camp--and the night that changes everything and will shape their lives for decades to come A group of young girls descend on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and camp songs by the fire. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home. The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls--Nita, Andee, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan--through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people. In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves--and the pasts we can't escape.

She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls. But the more she discovers, the more her memories return.

Mr. March laughed. “Sorry,” he said. “Her mother isn’t here right now, and she makes Jenny’s lunch. She and Jenny have gone shopping. Why don’t you just ask Jenny yourself, at school?”
“Uh, right. Okay, I’ll do that,” Nancy said, hanging up fast.
“This isn’t working,” Bess said.
“Maybe not for the kids in our class,” Nancy said. “But I think I’ll try Karen one more time.” Nancy dialed Karen Koombs’s number. “Wish me luck!” she whispered.
Bess crossed her fingers.
“Hello, Mrs. Koombs?” Nancy said. “This is Nancy Drew. I’m doing a report for a class project at school. Can you tell me what Karen likes to eat for lunch?”
“For lunch? Oh, that’s easy,” Mrs. Koombs said. “My kids will eat anything—as long as it has peanut butter on it. So every day I just give them peanut butter with whatever I have in the house!”

Sniffing Out the Proof
Karen must be the thief,” Nancy said, hanging up the phone. She told Bess everything Mrs. Koombs had said.
“I knew it!” Bess said. “Let’s go over to Karen’s house and make her give me my locket back.”
“We can’t,” Nancy said.
“Why not?”
“Because we don’t have any proof,” Nancy said.
“Whose side are you on, anyway?” Bess asked.
“Yours,” Nancy said. “And I think Karen took your locket. But my dad says you have to have proof. And we haven’t proved that she stole your locket. All we know for sure is that she eats peanut butter for lunch.”
Nancy picked up her notebook again. Bess peered over Nancy’s shoulder as she wrote:
Question: Where did the yucky sandwich come from?
Answer: Karen Koombs’s lunch!
“Okay, then let’s go over to her house and get the proof,” Bess said.
“How about this?” Nancy said. “We’ll go to her house and climb a tree. Then we can look in her bedroom window. Maybe we’ll see the locket. Or we can hide in the bushes until she comes out of the house. Then maybe we’ll catch her wearing it.”
“Climb a tree?” Bess said weakly.
Nancy laughed. “Sure. Why not?”
“You know I’m not good at climbing,” Bess said. “And why do we have to hide in the bushes? Bushes are prickly.”
“That’s okay,” Nancy said. “I can get someone else to help me.”
Bess’s face turned hot pink.
“You mean George. Okay, fine! Get George to help you!” Bess said in a grumpy voice.
“I will,” Nancy said. “Because George is my friend, too. And if we can make Karen give the locket back, then you and George can be friends again. And we can all go to the movies.”
“I’m not going to the movies with George, no matter what happens!” Bess announced. She stomped out of the room. Her animal slippers looked funny. The long doggie ears flopped as she walked.
Nancy picked up her notebook and quietly slipped out the back door.
What a mess, Nancy thought as she walked the two blocks to George’s house. Now Bess is mad at me, too.
Nancy rang the bell at George’s house. No one answered. So she walked around to the side. George was shooting baskets in the driveway with her dad. Nancy waited for them to finish. Then she told George about her plan.
“Okay,” George said. “I’ll help you get the locket back. I feel really bad that it’s gone. But I’m not going to make up with Bess. Not until she says she’s sorry.”
“For tearing up your soccer picture?” Nancy asked.
George nodded. “And for calling me that horrible name.” George didn’t even want to say it again. But Nancy knew what she meant. Georgia. George hated her real name.
When Nancy and George got to Karen Koombs’s house, they ducked into the yard. They hid behind some bushes. Then they circled the house and peeked in the windows.
“I can’t see anything. We’re not tall enough,” Nancy said.
“I’ll fix that,” George said with a smile. She turned around and looked behind her. There was a small tree near the house in the backyard.
George climbed it easily. She sat on a branch facing an upstairs window.
“It’s Karen’s room,” George called down to Nancy in a loud whisper.
Nancy looked around to be sure no one was coming. She didn’t want to get caught spying into Karen’s room.
“What do you see?” Nancy whispered back.
“I’ll tell you when I come down,” George whispered.
Nancy waited while George scrambled down the tree. When she got to the lowest branch, she jumped. George loved to jump from high places. She landed with a thump in the soft grass.
“Did you see the locket? Or anything?” Nancy asked.
George shook her head. “I couldn’t see anything on her dresser. It was all piled up with clothes and papers and stuff.”
“Hey—look,” Nancy said. She pointed up to Karen’s bedroom. Someone was peeking out at them from behind one of the curtains.
“Hi!” George called, waving.
“Why’d you do that?” Nancy asked.
“It’s probably Karen. Maybe she’ll come out,” George said.
But an instant later the curtains snapped shut.
“Now what?” George asked.
Nancy shrugged. “Well, we could wait until two o’clock. That’s when the ice cream truck usually comes. Maybe Karen will hear it and come out.”
“It’s October,” George said. “The ice cream truck stopped coming at the end of summer.”
“Oh, right,” Nancy said. “Then we could ring the bell and pretend we’re selling Girl Scout cookies. Or we could go home and make some popcorn and bring it over here. Maybe she’ll smell it and come outside.”
“Did you forget to have lunch today?” George asked.
Nancy looked at her watch. It was twelve-thirty. “Yes, I guess I did,” she said, blushing. “Why?”
“Because you sound hungry,” George said. “All your ideas are about food.”
Nancy laughed. “I am hungry,” she said. “Maybe we should go.”
George and Nancy walked to the front yard. But as they passed the front door, Nancy sniffed the air. Something smelled good in Karen’s house. Someone was baking cookies!
Suddenly the front door opened. A little boy came out. He had two cookies—one in each hand.
“Hi,” he said with his mouth full.
“Hi,” Nancy said, looking at the cookies. Her stomach growled.
“What’s your name?” the little boy asked.
“Nancy. What’s yours?”
“Jimmy,” the little boy answered. He had a bowl-shaped haircut and pudgy knees.
“Mmmm,” Nancy said. “Your cookies smell good. What kind are they?”
“Peanut butter,” the little boy answered.
Peanut butter! Of course! Nancy thought. She should have recognized that smell. And peanut butter was Karen’s favorite food!
“I’ll bet your sister likes those cookies, doesn’t she?” Nancy asked.
Jimmy nodded.
“Well, you know what I heard?” Nancy said. “I heard that your sister eats peanut butter every day. And someone told me that she even likes it with ketchup and mustard and relish. Is that true?”
“No, no, no,” Jimmy said, shaking his head and laughing. “That’s silly!”
“It is?” Nancy asked.
“Yes,” Jimmy said. “My sister hates relish. It’s her most unfavorite-est food in the whole world!”

Yuck for Lunch
Karen hates relish?” Nancy repeated the words, just to be sure.
Jimmy nodded his head. “I hate it, too,” he said proudly.
Nancy gave Jimmy a pat on the head. Then she walked a few steps away. She felt confused.
If Karen hates relish, Nancy thought, then she wouldn’t take a peanut butter and relish sandwich for lunch. So that meant Karen was not
the thief.
Nancy’s stomach growled again.
“I’m hungry,” Nancy told George. “I think I’d better go home and eat lunch.”
“Okay,” George said. “I guess I’ll go home, too.” George started to walk away. But then she called to Nancy.
“Hey, Nan! Why don’t you have a peanut butter sandwich for lunch? With mustard and ketchup and relish!”
“Maybe I will,” Nancy said with a laugh. “Maybe I just will.”
When Nancy got home, she made a peanut butter sandwich—but with strawberry jam. Then she sat down at the kitchen table and took out her blue notebook. She opened it to the page marked “New Suspects.” She crossed Karen Koombs’s name off the list.
Now what? Nancy wondered as she took a big bite of her sandwich. She stared at the list some more. There were still three suspects left. Jenny March, Mike Minelli, and Ned Nickerson.
Nancy’s mind was in a jumble. She poured herself a glass of milk and tried to think hard. Who had a good reason to steal the locket? she asked herself.
Then Nancy thought of a different question. Who was most likely to eat such a weird, yucky sandwich for lunch?
“I wonder what it tastes like,” Nancy said out loud.
The peanut butter was still sitting on the counter. So was the bread. Nancy jumped up and went right to work. She spread peanut butter on a single piece of white bread. Then she added mustard. And ketchup. And—worst of all— relish.
“Here goes,” Nancy said, holding her nose. She took a deep breath and then bravely took a bite.
“Blechhhh!” Nancy said. She almost spit the sandwich out right on the floor. But she knew better than that. So she ran to the sink. She spit it out there instead.
“What on earth are you doing?” Hannah asked, coming into the kitchen.
“I’m a detective,” Nancy said after she had rinsed out her mouth. “I’m investigating.”
“Well, what did you find out?” Hannah asked.
“I found out this sandwich tastes as bad as it looks!” Nancy said.

That night Nancy lay awake trying to figure things out. It was fun being a detective. She had already crossed one suspect off her list!
But it was not fun having Bess and George fighting with each other. Nancy needed a new plan.
The next morning when she woke up, Nancy called Bess on the phone.
“Are you still mad at me?” Nancy asked.
“No,” Bess said. “I guess not.”
“Good,” Nancy said. “Meet me in the park by the big tree at two o’clock. I have some important news about your locket.”
“What is it?” Bess asked.
Nancy lowered her voice and tried to sound mysterious. “I’ll tell you when you get there,” she said.
Then she called George and said exactly the same thing.
Then she ate breakfast with her father.
“Daddy,” Nancy asked, “if Bess and George stop fighting, can we go to the movies this afternoon?”
“Sure,” her father said. “Don’t tell me they’re still angry with each other.”
“Yes,” Nancy said. “But maybe I can fix that. I have a plan.”
Nancy crossed her fingers for good luck. When it was almost two, she walked to the park.
When Nancy got there, George was waiting by the big tree. She had her hands on her hips.
“Why did you tell Bess to meet us here?” George asked.
Nancy looked around. Bess was not there.
“How do you know I called Bess?” Nancy asked.
“Because she came to the park exactly at two. But she left when she saw me,” George said. “You tried to trick us, Nancy. And what’s the big news about the locket?”
“There isn’t any news,” Nancy admitted. “I just wanted you and Bess to make up—so we could all go to the movies this afternoon.”
“That’s really dumb,” George said.
Nancy blushed. “Well, when are you and Bess going to make up?” Nancy asked.
“Never!” George said. “She tore up my soccer picture on purpose. I didn’t lose her locket on purpose.”
“I guess that’s true,” Nancy said. “But you’re being just as stubborn as she is.”
George frowned. “Hmmm. I’d hate to be as stubborn as Bess,” she said. Then George and Nancy both laughed.
“Let’s do something fun,” Nancy said. “Like look for more clues. I still want to find out who stole Bess’s locket.”
“Aren’t you ever going to stop being a detective?” George said.
“Nope!” Nancy said happily.
Nancy took out her notebook and looked at the suspect list. The same three people were left: Jenny March, Mike Minelli, and Ned Nickerson.
“I’ll bet a boy did it,” Nancy said.
“Why would a boy steal a locket?” George asked.
“Just to be mean,” Nancy said. “That yucky sandwich was a mean trick, wasn’t it?”
“Yes,” George agreed. “But I still don’t think a boy would steal a locket.”
“Why not?” Nancy asked. “And a boy is more likely to have a yucky sandwich in his lunch, isn’t he?”
“Maybe,” George said. “But if you think a boy stole it, why don’t you ask him?”
“Ask who?”
“Him,” George said.
Nancy looked up and saw what George was pointing at. There was a boy riding his bike on the path in the distance.
And he looked exactly like one of Nancy’s main suspects. It looked like Ned Nickerson!

Brenda’s Sneaky Trick
Let’s follow him,” Nancy said, staring at Ned Nickerson. “Maybe we’ll see him steal something else. Or maybe we can find out what he eats for lunch.”
The two girls walked through the red and gold leaves toward Ned. But before they got very far, they heard a girl’s voice behind them.
“Nancy! George! Wait!” someone called.
Nancy turned around and saw Brenda Carlton waving to them. Brenda was in Nancy’s class at school.
“What does she want?” George said.
“I don’t know,” Nancy said, wrinkling her nose. “Let’s ignore her.”
“Nancy! Come back!” Brenda called even more loudly this time.
“Oh, well. Let’s go see what she wants,” Nancy said.
Nancy turned and walked toward Brenda. But she kept looking back at Ned. She didn’t want him to get away.
“Guess what?” Brenda said when Nancy and George finally reached the swings. “I found Bess’s locket.”
“You did?” Nancy couldn’t believe it. “Where?”
Brenda tried to keep a straight face. But a sneaky smile crept into the corners of her mouth.
“It’s right here,” she said. “Although I don’t know why Bess made such a big fuss. It’s not very pretty, if you ask me.”
“Where is it?” Nancy asked again. She felt a lump in her throat. Nancy didn’t want Brenda to solve the case. Not after all the detective work Nancy had done!
“It’s right there,” Brenda said, pointing at the ground.
Nancy bent down quickly and saw an old, rusty chain lying in the dirt. It wasn’t a necklace chain. It was the kind of chain that usually hung from a ceiling light or a fan.
“That’s not Bess’s locket, and you know it,” Nancy said angrily.
“It’s not?” Brenda said. She opened her eyes wide and pretended to be surprised.
“No!” Nancy said.
“Gee,” Brenda said with a mean smile. “I could have sworn it looked like something Bess would wear.”
“Very funny,” George said, glaring at Brenda.
Nancy didn’t say anything else to Brenda. She just tugged on George’s sleeve. Then the two of them turned around and walked away.
When they were far away, Nancy said, “Oooh! She makes me mad sometimes.”
“Me, too,” George said. “But forget it. I thought you wanted to spy on Ne
d.”
“I do,” Nancy said.
“Well, we’d better hurry,” George said. “He’s leaving the park.”
Nancy and George ran to catch up with him. He was waiting at the corner to walk his bike across the street. Nancy called, “Hi!” as loud as she could.
“Hi,” Ned said as Nancy and George came running up.
“Nice bike,” George said.
“Thanks,” Ned said. “It’s new.”
“Oh, cool! It has gears,” George said. She stooped down to look at the wheels.
“Yeah,” Ned said, grinning. “It’s a ten-speed.”
“Can I sit on it?” George asked.
Ned paused a minute. Then he said, “Okay.”
He’s pretty nice, for a boy, Nancy thought. Maybe it was because he was in the fourth grade.
Still, he was a major suspect in the case. Nancy couldn’t cross him off the list. Yet.
“Uh, can I ask you something?” Nancy said when George had gotten off his bike. “I’m doing a report about lunches. Do you take your lunch or buy it in the cafeteria?”
“Both,” Ned said. “What a dumb question!”
Thanks a lot, Nancy thought. Maybe Ned wasn’t so nice after all.
“Well, anyway,” Nancy went on, “when you take your lunch, what do you usually take?”
“Cheese sandwiches,” Ned said.
“Anything else?”
“Cookies,” Ned said. “And fruit. And chips. And juice.”
“I mean, do you ever take any other kind of sandwich?” Nancy said.
“Why do you want to know?” Ned said. “You’re weird.”
Nancy blushed. “It’s for a report. I told you. For school,” she said.
“Oh, yeah. You’ve got Ms. Spencer,” Ned said. “She gives weird stuff for homework. I remember that.”
“So can you answer my question?” Nancy asked. “What other kinds of sandwiches do you like?”
“Turkey,” Ned said. “And tuna fish.” Then he looked at his watch. “Gotta go,” he said. He pushed off with his foot and rode across the street.
When he was gone, Nancy opened her notebook. She crossed Ned’s name off the list. “I don’t think he’s the thief,” she said to George.
