The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, by Helen Grant
ünstereifel. Her only friend is another outcast, StinkStefan, and lucky for her he is a great friend -- brave, loyal and fun. Young girls are disappearing in this small German town as it prepares for Christmas, and according to local gossips, it isn't the first time. Pia and Stefan put themselves in danger trying to find out who is to blame. The stress and divisions in the town are having a disastrous effect on the marriage of Pia's parents. There's some wry humor, but perhaps not quite enough.
