When his older sister Charlie vanishes while traveling through Asia, seventeen-year-old Adam decides he can do more to find her than the nonchalant police and his distraught parents. Without telling his family, he boards a plane for Tokyo. He suspects Charlie may have been involved in the twilight world of bar "hostessing"-or worse. With help from new friends, especially the intriguing and beautiful Aiko, Adam prowls the town. His search ultimately leads him to Tokyo's underbelly of gangsters and drug dealers. Will he learn the truth about his sister's disappearance before it's too late? Also available: Zoo 1-58234-991-6 pb $8.95 Reviews "The novel's strength derives from the pulsing slice of life, cut from Tokyo's neon landscape-from the tiny, stacked bedrooms of capsule hotels to the outré costumes of roving scenesters. The stranger-in-a-strange-land motif, spiked with sexy Japanophilia and British slang, should draw literate manga fans and Anglophiles alike." -Publishers Weekly "A vividly portrayed movie of Tokyo as seen by a sophisticated young man in his late teens. ...It's a genuine teen page-turner however, and the sex, while mostly offstage, is hot. So what do you call chick-lit for boys?"-Kirkus Reviews "The plot twists and turns in this fast-paced, intriguing novel that will keep readers guessing." -School Library Journal "Even teens who disdain youth thrillers in favor of grittier adult fare may make an exception for this noir-tinged novel." -Booklist Featured in "Cool New Books" section, www.teenreads.com, May Praise for Zoo: "Fast-paced storytelling, realistic characters, and plenty of forensic science create appeal for a wide range of readers." -VOYA "An exciting, fast-paced thriller with realistic characters and puzzling circumstances that will keep you guessing and turning the pages." -www.Teenreads.com About the Author Graham Marks was a designer, editor, and jour
