Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Kann das Leben eigentlich noch viel schlimmer werden? Ja, es kann! Nicht nur dass Cathys Vater völlig unerwartet stirbt, sie in der Schule total die Probleme hat und ihre beste Freundin sauer auf sie ist ═ jetzt macht auch noch ihr Freund Victor mit ihr Schluss! Cathy ist verzweifelt. Doch dann entschließt sie sich, nach den Gründen für Victors Entscheidung zu suchen. Aber anstatt Antworten zu finden, tun sich für Cathy nur noch mehr Fragen auf: Was zum Beispiel hat der seltsame │Mückenstich╩ zu bedeuten, die nachdem sie bei Victor eingeschlafen war, plötzlich auf Cathys Arm auftaucht? Wieso ist Viktor mit knapp 20 Jahren dermaßen vermögend und arbeitet trotzdem als einfacher Laborassistent in einer BioTech-Firma? Welche Verbindungen hat er zu den Menschen, die Cathy in Chinatown trifft und die ihn offenbar gut kennen? Gemeinsam mit Cathy betritt der Leser eine Welt, in der viele Dinge nicht so sind, wie sie auf den ersten Blick scheinen! Der besondere Clou: Das Buch enthält Briefe, Fotos, Tagebucheintragungen sowie Randnotizen der Protagonistin, Telefonnummern (die der Leser tatsächlich anrufen kann!) und Internetadressen, mit deren Hilfe ein aufmerksamer Leser den Geheimnissen auf die Spur kommen kann ┤ │Wenn du nicht Emma heißt, leg dieses Buch schnell wieder weg, halt dich fern - und niemandem wird was geschehen! Emma - ich weiß, das alles klingt verrückt. Du (und Mom!), ihr werdet euch natürlich fragen, wohin ich verschwunden bin und wann ich zurückkomme. Deshalb hinterlasse ich dir das ganze Beweismaterial - nur für den Fall, dass mir etwas zustößt und ich nicht zurückkomme. Sieh dir alle Details in meinem Tagebuch genau an. Ruf die Telefonnummern an. Geh auf die Web-Seiten. Aber wenn du nicht enden willst wie ich ("kein Land in Sicht"), dann darfst du niemandem davon erzählen. Mach dir um mich keine Sorgen. Ich komme schon zurecht (glaub ich). Hey, vielleicht ist das der Anfang meines neuen Lebens. Ganz sicher ist es das Ende meines alten. Ruf mich an! Love, Cathy╩
