If You're Out There
Author: Katy Loutzenhiser
After Zans best friend moves to California, she is baffled and crushed when Priya suddenly ghosts. Worse,
Priyas social media has turned into a stream of ungrammatical posts chronicling a sunny, vapid new life
that doesnt sound like her at all. Everyone tells Zan not to be an idiot: Let Priya do her reinvention
thing and move on. But until Zan hears Priya say it, she wont be able to admit that their friendship is finished.
Its only when she meets Logan, the compelling new guy in Spanish class, that Zan begins to open up about her sadness,
her insecurity, her sense of total betrayal. And hes just as willing as she is to throw himself into the
investigation when everyone else thinks her suspicions are crazy.
Then a clue hidden in Priyas latest selfie introduces a new, deeply disturbing possibility:
Maybe Priya isnt just not answering Zans emails.
Maybe she cant.
