In fact, all this searching for the things and people that aren't in her life leads her to become blind to those that are in it. That is, until she stumbles across a world where all the missing people go???There??'s No Place Like Here. Here, she is forced to face up to all that has gone missing in her life, and for the first time that includes facing herself.
