It was all meant to be just a game, but now Grace is missing and may not even be alive. During an elaborate game of hide-and-seek on the beach, twelve-year-old sisters Annie and Grace are caught in the rising tide, and Grace seems to have been swept away. In the midst of this, fourteen-year-old Kip is also in the wrong place at the wrong time. Finding Grace's abandoned back-pack sets off a chain of events that lands Kip under police surveillance. As the search for Grace intensifies, suspicions grow. But can Kip piece everything together and clear his name before it's too late for Grace? Told in Kip's and Annie's alternating voices, this spellbinding mystery looks at the choices young people make-and their consequences.

I had to read this book for school work and it has one of the most annoying barbs at the end.
Everything's getting exciting your wondering what the ends going to be and BAM no i couldn't think of a
good ending so its all happy bye.
The book pulls you along and ends with a dull they lived happily ever after with nothing interesting. the police are idiots and don't know anything about procedure and act like they were used as a way to make the story eem a bit more tense. ted is weird and the only explanation is he is a drunk.
Avoid the book unless your forced to read it.
(And i am a guy who loves to read, please avoid this turd!)
