From the New York Times bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger comes a captivating thriller about two teens who connect when each discovers a mysterious radio frequency, which suggests their family tragedies are mysteriously connected.
After surviving an infamous family tragedy, sixteen-year-old Kennedy Jones has made it her mission to keep her brother’s search through the cosmos alive. But then something disturbs the frequency on his radio telescope–a pattern registering where no signal should transmit.
In a neighboring county, seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler is determined to find out what really happened to his brother, who disappeared the day after Nolan had an eerie premonition. There hasn’t been a single lead for two years, until Nolan picks up an odd signal–a pattern coming from his brother’s bedroom.
Drawn together by these strange signals–and their family tragedies–Kennedy and Nolan search for the origin of the mysterious frequency. But the more they uncover, the more they believe that everything’s connected–even their pasts–as it appears the signal is meant for them alone, sharing a message that only they can understand. Is something coming for them? Or is the frequency warning them about something that’s already here?
I started reading this book before bed one night, which I shouldn’t have done. I couldn’t put it down! I ended up finishing this book in just one day.
I loved that there was a supernatural element to the story. Though it is a realistic thriller, there is the suggestion that something extraterrestrial or supernatural is happening there. Both Kennedy and Nolan receive strange signals from their devices, which makes them think there is something happening near them. The signals end up leading them to each other, so they can investigate their family problems together.
There was a lot left unsaid at the beginning of the story which made me want to keep reading. The details of the homicides in Kennedy’s family aren’t actually explained until halfway through the book, and it was completely unexpected! Nolan’s brother’s disappearance is also investigated further towards the end of the book. Since the details of their lives are not described at the beginning, it made me want to keep reading to find out what happened.
I loved this book and I highly recommend it if you like teen thrillers!
