Reality Check by Peter Abrahams

realityCody has always relied on his athleticism, rather than his brainpower, to get him through life.  Sidelined by a torn ACL, and emotionally fragile because his girlfriend has been shipped to an out-of-state boarding school by her disapproving father, Cody drops out of school and drifts into a Percoset-enhanced life of idleness.  Then he gets a letter from Clea with some sentences he finds unnerving—especially when Clea vanishes from her boarding school—presumably confused after a riding accident.  Cody doubts this is the case, hauls himself from Colorado to Vermont, and solves the mystery of Clea’s disappearance.  Peter Abraham writes a taught, suspenseful plot, populated by intriguing characters who range from likeable to reprehensible and who often defy their first impressions.  Solid fare for teen readers.
