all that, Claire’s only goal is to complete her last year of high school so she
can finally start over and move on from her grief. To help her cope, she
retreats into the poetry of Emily Dickinson, whose old home happens to be
a class trip to her home, Claire starts slipping into the building after hours
and writing in her notebook. She appreciates the alone time in the home,
because that’s where she feels especially close to her mom.
night, Claire’s former student teacher, Tate, is also at the museum. Tate sets
off the alarm, while Claire is wearing Emily’s dress. Now, the pair is on the
run with a stolen dress on their hands. Claire quickly finds out that Tate
isn’t all he appears to be—he has quite a few secrets of his own. And things
get twice as complicated when the missing persons case for Claire’s best friend
is reopened—and they still think Claire knows where he is.
Dress and Other Missing Things by Kathryn

poetry. Follow Tate and Claire as they try and figure out what happened to her
best friend and how they can get the dress back to the museum.
