In the Hollows, a small town outside New York City, Maggie and Jones Cooper are having problems with their teenager, Rick. When Rick’s girlfriend, Charlene, goes missing, it brings back memories of another girl who disappeared twenty years ago. Her mutilated body was found, but some questions were never answered and some of the townspeople wrestle with the memories of that incident. Rick becomes a suspect and Maggie tries to deal with it all. I enjoyed Fragile  because the characters were so well written and realistic. I will definitely read her earlier book Black Out .
