“Fine” is the story of Anna Williams, a straight-A student, cheerleader and all-around golden child who vanished six years ago. After all these years, no one knows what happened or why. Her younger sister, Katie, has drifted through life ever since, wracked with guilt, grief and anger over Anna’s unsolved disappearance. But when her future reaches a breaking point, Katie takes the investigation into her own hands. Searching for answers in her sister’s missing person’s file, she discovers that some questions aren’t so easy to answer. Through police memos, interrogations and excerpts from Anna’s diary, Katie peaks behind the carefully crafted façade Anna left behind and uncovers the dark truths of her life in the months before she disappeared. Unsettling and surprising, “Fine” is a mystery that will break your heart and put it back together again.

Inspired by Gayle Forman and Jennifer Niven and written for all ages, “Fine” is a reminder of the resiliency of the human spirit and brings out the inner teenager in everyone.
