Adjacent is a place where nothing happens. It's an island with a bunch of delapidated trailers between a nuclear power plant and a dump. Then three people disappear. The first two nobody really noticed, but when Mrs Clarke disappears Diaphanta (Lady Di) and Tamir al-Khwarizmi (Tom Jones)decide they have to do something. In her trailer they find a clue 3 + 4 = 5. Mrs Clarke tutored them in math so they know it's not what it seems. Recommended for grades 5 and up.
