Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed young-adult author of Among the Hidden, Margaret Peterson Haddix captivates listeners with her enthralling tales.
As Lindsay Scott basks in the glow of being TV’s most popular child star, she suddenly begins to hear everything that’s being said about her—all the time, and from every place on the globe. After her apparent nervous breakdown, Lindsay disappears from the public eye until—years later—a tabloid claims her father is holding her hostage. Although the truth is actually much stranger, the article triggers a series of events that forces 16-year-old Lindsay to finally confront who she really is.


What the Critics Say

"[T]eens will like the brush with fame and her unique gift and will relate to her feelings of isolation and the need for others' help to spur on the maturation necessary to realize that one isn't always the center of the world; that others need our care." (School Library Journal)
