Picture Me Gone by Meg Rosoff
(to be released October 2013)
Printz Award-winning author Meg Rosoff’s latest novel is a gorgeous and unforgettable page-turner about the relationship between parents and children, love and loss.
Mila has an exceptional talent for reading a room—sensing hidden facts and unspoken emotions from clues that others overlook. So when her father’s best friend, Matthew, goes missing from his upstate New York home, Mila and her beloved father travel from London to find him. She collects information about Matthew from his belongings, from his wife and baby, from the dog he left behind and from the ghosts of his past—slowly piecing together the story everyone else has missed. But just when she’s closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best.
Why do I want to read this?
First off, I’ve read all of Meg Rosoff’s other books, and while some appeal to me more than others, I always enjoy her writing, her creativity, and how she never repeats herself. How I Live Now is one of my very favorite books, What I Was was just impossible to get out of my mind when I was done with it, and The Bride’s Farewell was lovely.
Second, I just really like the sound of this one! I like the emphasis on the father-daughter relationship, and I’d really like to know more about Mila’s talents and the secrets she uncovers. I’m really looking forward to reading Picture Me Gone!
