Find Me Gone is equal parts thriller and tender coming-of-age story that will leave readers wondering until the final page…what happened to Sophie?
1996. In the sleepy hamlet of Bachte-Maria-Leerne, in the Belgian countryside, the residents are reeling from the disappearance of several young girls. At the local school, St. Martin’s High, the devastating news is met with morbid fascination rather than fear among its students—except for twelve-year-old Sophie. For Sophie knows what it’s like to never truly feel safe. The only time she feels a sense of security is when she’s with her best friend Hannah. But when Hannah starts dating handsome Damian, Sophie feels left out. With each day, Sophie notices Hannah drifting farther from her. Before the friends can reconcile, the village is thrown into fresh panic when Sophie fails to return home after a high school dance—and is never seen again.
2014. Hannah is a successful columnist with a fashion magazine in New York City. But after years of documenting the revelries of the rich and famous, she craves a deeper subject. In an effort to reclaim herself and her writing, she gives up everything—her fiancé, her job, her in-crowd friends—and retreats to Brooklyn to write a book she thinks will help her understand her past: a biography of Agatha Christie, Barbara Follett, and Virginia Woolf. These three famous writers struggled with family, loyalty, and ambition, and each of them vanished without a trace.
Hannah’s attempt to narrate these women’s lives triggers memories she has long tried to suppress. What happened to Sophie that November night? How does someone just disappear? Find Me Gone is equal parts thriller and tender coming-of-age story. It takes the reader on a breathtaking journey from the Flemish countryside to New York. This debut crackles with suspense and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.
FIND ME GONE is available October 23rd in the USA & CANADA.
