Missing

A YA novel by Kelley Armstrong.

Kelley Armstrong

The only thing Winter Crane likes about Reeve's End is that soon she'll leave it. Like her best friend did. Like her sister did. Like most of the teens born in town have done. There's nothing for them there but abandoned mines and empty futures. They're better off taking a chance elsewhere.
 
The only thing Winter will miss is the woods. Her only refuge. At least it was. Until the day she found Lennon left for dead, bleeding in a tree.
 
But now Lennon is gone too. And he has Winter questioning what she once thought was true. What if nobody left at all? What if they're all missing? (From Penguin Teen)

From the book

"Twenty dollars an hour," I say to the guy who's stopped me as I head for Doc Southcott's. I know his name. When your high school has only two hundred kids, you can't even pretend you don't. But from his expression, you'd think I've clearly forgotten him. Forgotten who he is, at least.

I lean against the crumbling brickwork. "You asked if I can help boost your math grade. The answer is yes. For twenty dollars an hour."

"But..."

"I know, Garrett. You expected I'd do it for the pleasure of your company. That's what you're used to — girls jumping at the chance to spend time with you. You're a decent guy, though, so I'll warn you that it's not so much you they're after as a one-way ticket out of Reeve's End. Preferably with a cute boy who'll earn a football scholarship... as long as he can get the grades for college. Which is why you're here."
