Something Lost (Zodiac Cusp Kids, Book 3) by Sarah Dale
It’s a Friday afternoon in the spring of 1985 when two girls from Whitehall, the neighborhood group home for troubled kids, approach Angie at school. Crystal’s little sister, Desiree, has disappeared. Her foster parents and the police think she is just another runaway. Crystal doesn’t believe it, and when she and her friend Barb learn there is a ghost involved, they know they are going to need the kind of help Angie, David, and Jenny have developed a reputation for. The Zodiac Cusp Kids have enlisted some extra help from Jen’s twin Jon and a couple of very special German Shephard pups to uncover what has really happened to Desiree. What they find is darker and more complex than anyone imagined.
Something Lost is the third of seven stories drawn from Angie’s diaries. Kept safely hidden for decades, they tell how the kids spent their teenage years; working with their mentor, Mr. Rakow and Jenny’s mom, Lorraine, who dabbles in witchcraft, to realize their power and battle the forces of darkness that menace their hometown.
