Thirteen-year-old Emily Houchens doesn’t have many friends. She spends her time alone in the woods near her house – her safe place, until she finds the body of a young woman.

Susanna Mitchell is searching for her sister, Ronnie, who vanished after leaving a late-night bar. The more she discovers about Ronnie’s life, the more she realises that her sister began to disappear long before she went missing.

The Next Time You See Me explores the fault-lines of a small community – their hidden desires and their other, secret selves.
