About the Book
Lisa Thompson's debut novel is a page-turning mystery with an emotionally-driven, complex character study at its core -- like Rear Window meets The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Matthew Corbin suffers from severe obsessive-compulsive disorder. He hasn't been to school in weeks. His hands are cracked and bleeding from cleaning. He refuses to leave his bedroom. To pass the time, he observes his neighbors from his bedroom window, making mundane notes about their habits as they bustle about the cul-de-sac.

When a toddler staying next door goes missing, it becomes apparent that Matthew was the last person to see him alive. Suddenly, Matthew finds himself at the center of a high-stakes mystery, and every one of his neighbors is a suspect. Matthew is the key to figuring out what happened and potentially saving a child's life... but is he able to do so if it means exposing his own secrets, and stepping out from the safety of his home?

My Take on the Book
This is a great book that really did a great job at creating a compelling story that really made you come back for more. As someone that loves a great mystery, this author has . it right. This book provides you with a story written for the middle school audience, readers of all ages intriguing characters, filled with drama and even some action throughout the book. While this is written for niddle school ages, the content within could be applicable to all! All-in-all this was a fast read that I highly encourage all to read!
