This debut novel comes from the pen of a very moving and talented writer. In this story, we meet Lydia Pasternak, a fifteen-year-old high school student whose brother, Danny, has gone missing. The story follows Lydia’s journey as she struggles to find a way to properly grieve for the brother she never really liked and find herself in his absence. Her parents are detached, her friendships at school are lopsided and Lydia is ripe for obsession when a new Detective comes to handle her brother’s case. But what follows is a desperate search to figure out hidden clues and sort through the madness that comes when what is found is not what Lydia was looking for. Sad and dynamic in it’s struggle, Lydia’s journey will stay will readers for a long time.
Four and a half stars (out of five).
