Author Francis L. Guenetteabout this book: Disappearing in Plain Sight is a novel set on the shores of a Northern Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada) lake. The novel explores the complex relationships that have developed between a tight-knit community of people who's lives are rich with human emotion, relationships, romance and mystery. The novel's plot twists and turns, keeping the reader guessing all the way. What distinguishes Disappearing in Plain Sight from other novels is the way in which the author has managed to authentically represented the voice of both young people and the adults who surround them.

The story unfolds as Lisa-Marie, a troubled teenager, spends the summer with her aunt near Crater Lake on Vancouver Island. The descriptions of the area give vivid backdrops to a difficult story of the young girl's growth. The people who inhabit the tight-knit social climate all change during the summer. The devastating loss two years ago of Caleb, a central figure to the inhabitant's circle of friends, finally plays out as his closest associates emerge from their grief to deal with their lives.

Anyone who remembers what it was like to be young and in love will enjoy this book. Parents, mental health care workers, and teachers will find the novel a valuable read as it explores real issues of bullying, teen suicide, trauma and abuse.
