Tommy Smythe is missing.
Fact: Tommy was good at physics and less good at basic human interactions.
Fact: Tommy recorded his thoughts and observations in a notebook.
Fact: Tommy believed in the existence of parallel universes.
Fact: Tommy was adopted.

The facts are simple. The conclusions to be drawn from the facts are not simple. Did he run away to find his birth parents? Did he slip through a wormhole and enter one of the multiple universes he believed in? Did he simply wander off? 

Only one thing is certain: until a possibility is proven true, all possibilities exist.

Told through multiple perspectives, here is a story about how residents of a small town seek answers to the mystery of a teen’s disappearance.

PRAISE FOR EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN:
“In her first novel for teens, Lane offers a gripping and genre bending mosaic.” - Publishers Weekly

“Complex and Rich” - Horn Book

"This is the kind of book you tuck in with and escape into, and it will stay with you long after you finish the last lines.  Haunting and beautiful.” - Jennifer Mathieu, author of The Truth About AliceDevoted, and Afterward

“The narrative jiggers between unexpected opposites—joy and fear, love and violence, grief and hope—all the while holding forth the constant idea that the world offers us credible evidence of what seems impossible if we only know where to look.”  J.L. Powers, author of AminaThis Thing Called The Future, and the forthcoming Broken Circle

"Ever look at a pearl and notice that its one color is, in fact, many colors? That’s the beauty of EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN, the stunning debut novel by Lindsey Lane.” - Conrad Wesselhoeft, author of Adios NirvanaDirt Bikes, Drones and Other Ways To Fly

Lindsey Lane’s Evidence of Things Not Seen Playlist

I know that some writers assemble sound tracks for their novels. Others put together play lists for each character. My playlist process for Evidence was different. In some cases, I imagined these songs playing on the radio as the characters drove along US 281 or when they walked into the Whip In. In many other cases, I would be out driving and one of these songs would come on and suddenly I would be driving along the pages of the novel, thinking about the pull out and Tommy and Maricela and…

Enjoy.
