Description

Daisy and Henry are best friends, and they know all each other's secrets. Or, so Daisy thinks, until she wakes up one morning to find that Henry and his family have disappeared without a trace. Daisy suspects Henry's disappearance is connected to their seriously awkward meeting the night before, but then she finds a note from Henry, containing just the words "SAVE ME."

Deeply worried, Daisy convinces her unemployed brother to take her on a rescue mission into the California mountains. As they begin to home in on Henry's exact location, they also start to find some disturbing clues... clues that call into question everything Daisy believes she knows about her friend. Why is he so hard to find? What kind of trouble is he in, exactly? And most importantly, who is actually saving who?

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 30, 2015 – Sixteen-year-old Daisy Cruz hasn't heard from her best friend Henry Hawking for days. She's worried that an awkward moment they shared has damaged their friendship, but as the days pass, she knows it has to be more. Also, why is everyone at school suddenly falling ill? A note on Henry's desk leaves Daisy certain that he's in danger, and additional clues lead her deep into California's Los Padres National Forest, and finally to an underground bunker. Then things get really weird. Snow (Bubble World) presents a quirky entry into the "Is this it for humanity?" genre, as Daisy is thrust into a potential apocalypse she is ill-equipped to handle. Daisy's engaging voice and dry wit are a real highlight, especially where her survivalist ineptitude is concerned ("Did you know that straight bleach can actually burn a hole in your clothes? Neither did I!"). Themes of loyalty, friendship, and family bonds are the foundations of a winning story filled with small, poignant moments that, against a background of uncertainty, don't feel small at all. Ages 14 up.
