★★★★ ☐ The publisher has provided a copy for review.
Surprised and relieved by turn, I stayed with this book until the last page.
Who would you be if everyone thought you were dead -- and you let them think that? If you walked away from your family and friends and made a completely new life for yourself? How would you reinvent yourself? Protect yourself from discovery?
This is a beautiful and terrible book of choices and consequences. I read Emily's story as if she was me ... or my sister. Hooper writes a journey of discovery, hiding, and hope.
Well worth picking up. You'll be sorry to see the final paragraph.
