From the creators of the #1 podcast Limetown, an
explosive prequel about a teenager who learns of a
mysterious research facility where over three hundred people
have disappeared—including her uncle—with clues that become
the key to discovering the secrets of this strange town.
On a seemingly ordinary day, seventeen-year-old Lia Haddock
hears news that will change her life forever: three hundred
men, women, and children living at a research facility in
Limetown, Tennessee, have disappeared without a trace. Among
the missing is Emile Haddock, Lia’s uncle.
What happened to the people of Limetown? It’s all anyone can
talk about. Except Lia’s parents, who refuse to discuss what
might have happened there. They refuse, even, to discuss
anything to do with Emile.
As a student journalist, Lia begins an investigation that
will take her far from her home, discovering clues about
Emile’s past that lead to a shocking secret—one with
unimaginable implications not only for the people of
Limetown, but for Lia and her family. The only problem
is…she’s not the only one looking for answers.
Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie are first-rate storytellers, in
every medium. Critics called their podcast Limetown
“creepy and otherworldly” (The New York Times) and
“endlessly fun” (Vox), and their novel goes back to
where it all began. Working with Cote Smith, a PEN/Robert W.
Bingham Prize Finalist, they’ve crafted an exhilarating
mystery that asks big questions about what we owe to our
families and what we owe to ourselves, about loss,
discovery, and growth. Threaded throughout is Emile’s
story—told in these pages for the first time ever.
