It’s a bit hard to write about this without giving too much away.  Despite the title, the book isn’t really about Lizzie.  It’s about Hawthorn, a senior in high school who simply does not fit in.  Not with her family, not in her classes, not really even with her best (only) friend.

Hawthorn meets Lizzie during her freshman year,  Fascinated  and then spurned by the senior girl Hawthorn becomes a bit obsessed with her, making herself believe that she really knows Lizzie.  And when Lizzie disappears the obsession grows.  She actually takes Lizzie’s job and begins dating her boyfriend.

It’s a complicated book with lots of interest subplots (werewolves, hippies).  I can’t say I liked Hawthorn, but she sure was interesting.
