Missing : a memoir
Brown University sophomore Lindsay Harrison and her mother were best friends, and she and her two brothers usually spoke on the phone with her several times every day. So in March of 2006, when their mom didn't show up for work in the morning and wasn't answering their phone calls, Lindsay and her brothers knew immediately that there was a serious problem. In Missing, Lindsay Harrison chronicles the frantic days of searching following the disappearance of her mother, and then the days bleeding into years after her mother is found, as Lindsay examines her mother's life and her own childhood more closely, trying to pinpoint where things went so terribly wrong.
