Book Trailer Thursday: DISAPPEARED

This week’s trailer introduces Francisco X. Stork’s YA novel, Disappeared (Scholastic). Publishing in September, the book explores human trafficking and abduction in Mexico through the character of Sara, a journalist who specializes in writing stories about missing women and girls. Her brother Emiliano struggles with finding ways to support their family, but when he thinks he’s found a path to financial security, he soon finds out he’s actually working for the drug cartel. The trailer captures the tone of the book wonderfully by focusing on Sara’s urgent need to find her best friend, who disappeared two months ago.

Booklist reviewer Reinhardt Suarez writes, “Not only does this result in a riveting story, it also highlights the harsh complexity of young Mexicans’ lives. Readers will find this thrilling as well as eye-opening.”
