Small Town Life

Small Town Life

Fragile by Lisa Unger

One of the great things about living in a small town is that everyone knows everyone else. One of the worst things about living in a small town is that everyone knows everyone else. That is the case with The Hollows, a small town in upstate New York, about a hundred miles from the city. It’s hard to grow up and be a different person when everyone knows you as the person you were in high school. Were you a jock? A goth? A nerd? And if you try to grow out of your high school self, can you ever do that in your home town?

This is a suspenseful story about life in a small town and the secrets that can hide even there. When a young girl goes missing it looks like history could be repeating itself. The tranquil safe life that has been cultured in The Hallows suddenly shows itself for being extremely fragile.
