When a picture of a person who should be dead appears on social media, one woman begins a desperate search through multiple identities and across Western Canada. A mystery, a road novel, and a coming of age story, Disappearing in Reverse is a fearless and vulnerable exploration of young womanhood that exists in the liminal places where expectations falter and the unexpected thrives.


"Rae Andre’s book provides a knowledgeable summary of key climate science issues as she presents her humanistic perspective throughout her book. Unlike other books that stress climate science and policy, Andre zeros in on human behavior with what she calls the two systems of thinking – system one, which is more emotionally based, and system two, which is systematic and rationally based. This reviewer is particularly impressed on the chapter on defining the 'business of business' where she discusses for-profit business decision-making and motivations."
