When Brooke, Eva, Nate, and Jay take a nighttime sail off the Florida coast, they never imagined that their lives are about to change
forever. Shipwrecked by a storm at sea, the teenagers become castaways on an island that seems designed to test their very natures.
Faced with loss, trauma, and the harsh reality of day-to-day survival, will they find the strength to confront their inner demons and
escape the Vanishing Place? Or are mysterious forces at work to keep them stranded for all time?
“An adventure story for reluctant readers driven by high winds of melodrama.” —Kirkus
