In Search of the Rose Notes by Emily Arsenault

“Fitting that Charlotte would call while I was doing nothing. When we were kids, she was always saving me from nothing. What are you doing? Nothing. And compared to Charlotte’s house, with its big brother, its basketball hoop, its VCR, its trampline, and its pantry full of Oreos, my place really was nothing.”

Nora and Charlotte were grade school friends who spent all their free time together. After school, Rose the babysitter, often played games with them until the day she went missing. Sixteen years later, Charlotte calls Nora to tell her that Rose has been found. Nora goes back to Waverly, reconnects with Charlotte, and they fall back into their routine of trying to figure what happened to Rose.
