Launch Day for Lindsey Lane's EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN!

Posted by Adi Rule on Tue, Sep 16, 2014 @ 08:09 AM

We're all hurrahs for Lindsey Lane, whose young adult novel Evidence of Things Not Seen is out today from Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers!

When high school junior Tommy Smythe goes missing, everyone has a theory about what happened to him. He was an odd kid, often deeply involved in particle physics, so maybe he just got distracted and wandered off. He was last seen at a pullout off the highway, so maybe someone snatched him. Tommy believes that everything is possible, and that until something can be proven false, it may be true. So as long as Tommy’s whereabouts are undetermined, he could literally be anywhere.

Told in a series of first-person narratives from people who knew Tommy and third-person chapters about people who find the things Tommy left behind—his red motorbike, his driving goggles, pages from his notebook—Evidence of Things Not Seen explores themes of loneliness, connectedness, and the role we play in creating our own realities.

Congratulations, Lindsey! Welcome, Evidence of Things Not Seen!
