Caroline’s the model prep school student—with a secret girlfriend she isn’t allowed to have and a second home in a rundown bar. But her plans to graduate and abandon her perfect persona derail when her wealthy best friend goes missing. As Caroline searches for the girl everyone wants to find, she uncovers a pattern of girls no one’s looking for. When she tracks their disappearances to her secret life, it leads to the brutal truth: she’s the link between them all.

Andrea Contos

Andrea Contos is a writer of young adult mysteries and thrillers. After a childhood spent hiding beneath the covers to read books by flashlight, she obtained a degree in business, where the only writing involved legal responses and termination letters. She happily traded those for works of fiction, and she still loses far too much sleep creating and enjoying a good book. Her debut, THROWAWAY GIRLS, will be published with KCP Loft in spring of 2020. Andrea is a Pitch Wars 2019 and 2018 Mentor, a 2017 Mentee, and a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

She grew up in Detroit, and thanks to the tours given by her policeman father, she can tell you exactly where the morgue is. She currently lives outside the city with her tiny-feminist daughters, her husband, and their very fluffy cat.

Andrea is represented by Sarah Davies of The Greenhouse Literary Agency.
