The Truth Lies Here
Available August 2018 from HarperTeen
This funny, eerie stand-alone novel is set in small-town Michigan, where Penny, an aspiring journalist, teams up with the nerdy boy next door and the town's star quarterback to find her conspiracy theorist father after he goes missing and several other townspeople turn up dead in the woods.
The deeper she digs, the weirder things start to get. Townspeople repeat the same phrases--verbatim. Men in black suits stroll around Main Street. Chunks of her memory go missing. Pretty soon, Penny's research leads her to the long-ago meteorite crash in Bone Lake's woods, and she's going to have to reconsider her definition of 'real' if she wants answers...
"Klingele's spooky, sci-fi-tinged mystery reads like a YA X-Files in the best possible way." -- Booklist
“A surprisingly heartfelt coming-of-age story wrapped in a zany package.” -- Kirkus
“[M]arvelous...a believable story for teens who love coming-of-age stories in the vein of Stranger Things or science fiction shows like The Twilight Zone or The X-Files. This one has great appeal for most teens who enjoy classic science fiction and a good mystery.” -- School Library Journal
