Out of Reach tour with Carrie Arcos


Out of Reach 
Carrie Arcos


How do you find someone who doesn’t want to be found? A girl searches for her missing addict brother while confronting her own secrets in this darkly lyrical novel.

Rachel has always idolized her older brother Micah. He struggles with addiction, but she tells herself that he’s in control. And she almost believes it. Until the night that Micah doesn’t come home.
Rachel’s terrified—and she can’t help but feel responsible. She should have listened when Micah tried to confide in her. And she only feels more guilt when she receives an anonymous note telling her that Micah is nearby and in danger.
With nothing more to go on than hope and a slim lead, Rachel and Micah’s best friend, Tyler, begin the search. Along the way, Rachel will be forced to confront her own dark secrets, her growing attraction to Tyler…and the possibility that Micah may never come home

Special Exerpt:

“Micah started out slowly, ‘This is me. I’m not you or Mom. I know I have some issues, but I’ve got it handled now. I’m fine.’ And then he said the biggest lie ever. ‘I’m not perfect like Rachel.’
The shock must have registered on my face because the counselor asked me, ‘Rachel is there anything you’d like to say to Micah? It’s okay. This is a safe space.’
Safe spaces exist only where people aren’t, I thought. I shook my head, no.”
