Girl moves to new town.
Girl meets Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome.
Cue Happily Ever After.
That's how the story goes, right?
Except this is Lucy. The same Lucy whose stellar driving skills single-handedly wiped out both of her parents, leaving her with nothing but the suitcase in her hand and the screws in her skull. Not to mention that Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome - AKA Oliver - is just as annoyingly bossy as he is hot. According to Oliver, Lucy's not safe in her new hometown, but he refuses to say why. He just gives her some lame warning about not going out after dark, like that'll stop her.
When several townspeople vanish, the lethargic community springs to life, fearful of the danger lurking among them. The problem is that Lucy's the last person to have seen any of the missing. Doesn't exactly qualify her for the Neighbor of the Year Award.
Lucy's already given up on Happily Ever After, but now she has two choices left: find out what's happening in her new home, or become the next victim.

Fun and Compelling
How it kept my interest and I always wanted to hear more. It is a gripping and fun story
She was perfect for the age group this book was targeted for
S.J. Henderson's books are wonderful and I read the softcover of "In the Middle" When I saw that it was available in audio I grabbed it and listened to it from beginning to end. A great story

The great themes of life in a YA paranormal
Death, love, regret and forgiveness: Jen Henderson’s *In the Middle* tackles some of the weightiest topics in life, through the eyes of teenagers. Intersecting planes of reality and the reiteration of lives bring the advanced narrative techniques of contemporary literature into the domain of Young Adult fiction. Love between man and woman, parent and child, across the racial divide and even that of animal and human, are occasions for Henderson’s delicate moral touch. There’s action, adventure and a sophisticated ending that leaves us wondering.
