Los Angeles-based author Carrie Arcos will read from and sign copies of her debut young-adult novel, Out of Reach. The book is about a girl's search for her troubled older brother, who has suddenly gone missing.

The Skylight website describes the book's premise:

Rachel has always idolized her older brother Micah. He struggles with addiction, but she tells herself that he's in control. And she almost believes it. Until the night that Micah doesn't come home. Rachel's terrified--and she can't help but feel responsible. She should have listened when Micah tried to confide in her. And she only feels more guilt when she receives an anonymous note telling her that Micah is nearby and in danger ...
Out of Reach is published by Simon & Schuster's Simon Pulse imprint.
