  The Last Good Place of Lily Odilon
by Sara Beitia
October 1st, 2010

We've been over this, he says. We have to get to her first.

I know! Olivia snaps. I'm keeping company with a suspected murderer and I've probably become an accessory at this point, and a runaway besides. So don't tell me what I need to do. I'm doing it.

Lily Odilon—local wild child from a small Idaho town—has vanished after spending the night with her sometimes boyfriend, new kid Albert Morales. Suspected in her disappearance, Albert sets out to discover what happened to her. Kidnapped? Runaway? Murder victim?

Joining Albert is Lily's prickly younger sister, Olivia. Their distress is mirrored in a fast-paced narrative that jumps through three time-lines. Each thread adds a new level to the mystery and reveals clues that paint a startling picture of all three teens. Their intertwined destinies come to a head in an unconventional climax.
Who doesn't love a good mystery? I'm loving the premise of this one. The resident enigmatic girl goes missing, and her boyfriend and sister embark on a journey to find her. Sounds almost like Looking for Alaska mixed with Getting Lost With Boys, plus a little more mystery. Doesn't that sound exciting? I can't wait to read this and see how the story unfolds, and most of all, find out what really happened to Lily Odilon.
