Fragile by Lisa Unger

When Charlene, a high school student, goes missing in the small town of The Hollows outside New York City, it reminds the residents of the disappearance and subsequent murder twenty years ago of another student, Sarah. Maggie and Jones Cooper's son, Ricky, is Charlene's boyfriend, so suspicion falls on him. Troubled teenager Marshall Crosby also seems more on edge than usual and wants to stop seeing Maggie, who's been counseling him. Marshall's father (Travis), Charlene's mother (Melody), Jones and Maggie were fellow students of Sarah's back then and the current set of events make their lives almost unbearable. Will Charlene be found so the secrets of the past can be laid to rest? Fragile is similar to the novels of Jodi Picoult.
