Here is a summary of The Vanished as posted by Scholastic:
With the heart shaped herb thriving, a group of Wakanda’s finest engineers working on expanding her dome technology, and the borders more fortified than they’ve ever been before, Princess Shuri can finally focus on what matters most: her training. But before she can get started, a bigger problem rears its head. The princess hears whispers of exceptionally talented young girls across the world going missing. A young environmental scientist in Kenya, a French physics prodigy — the list of the missing keeps growing and growing. And when this mystery hits home in a way the princess would’ve never expected, there’s no more time for hesitation: there are lost girls out there somewhere, and Shuri is determined to not let them be forgotten.
