When We Vanished

They want their secrets to stay buried.

She's not going to let that happen.

When Andi Lin overhears details about a harmful research study at the food corporation Nutrexo, she’s instantly worried that her dad is involved. He left home to participate in one of the company’s clinical trials, and was in frequent contact at first—but her recent attempts to reach him have been met with silence.

Fearing he may be in danger, Andi sets out to investigate. Her search for answers leads her to the head scientist at Nutrexo’s confidential research facility, where she learns that the truth is more complicated—and more devastating—than she ever could have imagined.
