About the Book
The stunning sequel to Raising Arcadia.
To understand the present, Arcadia Greentree must dig deep into her past.
Her family torn apart by tragedy, Arcadia tries to locate the “professor” whom she believes to be ultimately responsible. A series of clues lead her to Oxford University and a confrontation with her enemy—but all is not as it seems.
"Packed with intellectual puzzles, the taut chain of events invites
the reader's participation every step of the way. This subtle, intriguing novel
raises the bar for young adult contemporary fiction. When we enter the world of
our brilliant teenage protagonist with all its attendant mysteries—Who is Arcadia?
Who is our killer?—we are reminded that the present, viewed keenly,
holds all the keys to the past. This book is impossible to put down."
—Michelle Martin, Radio personality, Host of Talking Books.
