Rebecca’s debut novel, THE MYSTERY OF HOLLOW PLACES (HarperCollins Children’s, Balzer + Bray, Spring 2016), is a Young Adult contemporary. Imogene Scott, the daughter of a bestselling mystery writer, was raised on stories of troubled detectives whose only super power was their tireless search for the truth. When her father goes missing, she sets out to find him using the skills she’s learned from his books. Along the way, Immy uncovers truths about the mother who left her years before, and about the loneliness that’s marked the family for generations.
