Summary (from Goodreads):
Seventeen-year-old Lauren is having visions of girls who have gone missing. And all these girls have just one thing in common—they are 17 and gone without a trace. As Lauren struggles to shake these waking nightmares, impossible questions demand urgent answers: Why are the girls speaking to Lauren? How can she help them? And… is she next? As Lauren searches for clues, everything begins to unravel, and when a brush with death lands her in the hospital, a shocking truth emerges, changing everything. 

With complexity and richness, Nova Ren Suma serves up a beautiful, visual, fresh interpretation of what it means to be lost.

Isn't the book cover for Nova Ren Suma's 17 & Gone hauntingly beautiful? The cover may have first captured my attention, but the premise for 17 & Gone is a combination of mystery and suspense I simply find irresistible too. Already, my mind is formulating questions about the characters and events in the book. Why are the seventeen-year-old girls disappearing... and why is Lauren having nightmarish visions about them? I can't wait to find out when 17 & Gone is released in March 2013!
