Boy, 9, Missing by Nic Joseph
Twenty-three years ago, at a small dinner party in a Chicago suburb, Francis Scroll’s nine year old brother, Lucas, was found floating face down in his parents’ bathtub. Lucas’s friend Sam is the only person who can reveal the truth, but he is unable—or unwilling—to speak, and Lucas’s death is ruled a tragic accident
Francis is forced to confront the past he buried long ago when Sam’s own nine-year-old son goes missing, and all the evidence points to Francis’s vengeful father as the prime suspect. In order to save the life of a young boy, Francis must unearth the truth about what happened the night his brother died.
