Product description

Review

Altebrando nails the staccato delivery of popular investigative podcasts like Serial . . . Extremely effective in landing emotional punches . . . Taut and thoroughly gripping. -- starred review ― Publishers Weekly on THE POSSIBLE

The juicy premise is enough to draw mystery/crime fans, and Altebrando unspools details with a deft hand. ― BCCB on THE POSSIBLE

This gripping tale, full of unexpected twists and turns, will intrigue readers who enjoy psychological thrillers with a touch of the paranormal. ― School Library Journal on THE POSSIBLE

You will not sleep, check your phone or even breathe once you begin reading The Leaving. Altebrando hides a meditation on memory and identity inside a top-speed page-turner. I promise, you will not even look up from the page. -- E. Lockhart, author of WE WERE LIARS on THE LEAVING

A twisting, harrowing story . . . Engrossing, both as a thriller and a meditation on memory--its limits, its loss, and the ways it deceives and constructs identity. -- starred review ― Publishers Weekly on THE LEAVING

This is no mere thriller; folded into this compulsively readable work are thought-provoking themes. . . . Teens who enjoy engrossing, contemplative titles such as Adam Silvera's More Happy Than Not will devour this insightful musing on memory and identity. -- starred review ― School Library Journal on THE LEAVING

As heart-stopping as it is heart-breaking, The Leaving layers a wildly strange suspense story over a lovely and unexpected narrative of grief, loss, and the struggle to imagine a future in the shadow of the past. -- Robin Wasserman, author of GIRLS ON FIRE on THE LEAVING

This book gripped me on the first page, and by the last, had really moved me. It's a twisty, oh no she didn't thriller that keeps the surprises firing, but also a thoughtful meditation on memory, identity, and what really makes us who we are. -- Bennett Madison, author of SEPTEMBER GIRLS on THE LEAVING

We are rushed headlong into Altebrando's The Leaving, and instantly we want to know: Who are these wildly intriguing teens? Where are their memories hiding? Who or what has engineered the disappearance of their childhood? Bold, inventive, and engaging, The Leaving leaps straight off the page. -- Beth Kephardt, author of SMALL DAMAGES and THIS IS THE STORY OF YOU on THE LEAVING --This text refers to the paperback edition.
