About the Author:

Catherine MacPhail won the Kathleen Fidler Award with her first novel, Run Zan Run, which Bloomsbury has re-issued, and the Scottish Arts Council Award with her second novel Fighting Back, also re-issued by Bloomsbury. Her other books for Bloomsbury include Dark Waters, Another Me and Missing. Catherine MacPhail's work is enormously popular with young teenagers, her trademarks being a mix of humour, with pacy and topical story-lines.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Maxine Moody, 13, is struggling with the disappearance of her older brother. Her emotions run from guilt for wishing Derek dead to rage at her parents' seeming indifference toward her, and her guilt deepens when her father identifies Derek's body. The Moody family begins to unravel further as her mother seeks comfort from psychics and her father refuses to talk about his son or his wife's deteriorating health. Matters worsen when someone begins calling Maxine, identifying himself as Derek. She thinks that the calls may be the doing of the vicious class bully, who had taunted her brother. Unable to turn to her parents, she confides in her new friend Cam, who agrees to go with her to meet the mystery caller. The plot initially catches readers' interest, but then it branches into many poorly developed subplots, and the thin characterizations make it difficult to care about these people and their problems. The conclusion seems contrived when all the conflicts are solved and Derek returns home. Fans of the mystery/suspense genre will be better served with titles by Caroline Cooney and Lois Duncan.
