Making Teresa Disappear

When seventeen-year-old Jill Hanson and two of her friends witness a fatal pedestrian accident, Jill sets out to prove that the victim was predestined to suffer that fate. Her belief is based on her classroom reading of Thorton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Bridge of San Luis Rey. Several weeks later, she has another opportunity to investigate the same theory. A well-liked teacher in her high school is brutally murdered. As the story unfolds, she becomes acquainted with a small-town newspaper reporter, Josh Solomon, who is investigating why everyone in authority, including his own editor/publisher, appears to want any interest in the murder of Teresa Owens to simply go away.
