Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. A National Book Award finalist!

Mila has an exceptional talent for reading a room—sensing hidden facts and unspoken emotions from clues that others overlook. So when her fathers 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 shes closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best. 

 

* “Teeming with complex adult problems—infidelity, marital collapse, the death of a child—this thought-provoking coming-of-age story requires that readers be at least as mature as Mila as she confronts unpleasant truths. … Milas sharp observations of the people she meets and the winter landscape add a fresh, poetic aura to her discoveries and the novel as a whole.” —Publishers Weekly starred review

 

* “With strong characters and a well-articulated plot, Picture Me Gone is a welcome addition to any collection. The author accurately captures this mature adolescent's view of adults without condescension or judgment, a feat worthy of praise. Complex issues are dealt with, and, true to the novel's trajectory, a tidy ending would have been out of place. Rosoff does not disappoint.”—School Library Journal starred review

 

* “A brilliant depiction of the complexity of human relationships in a story that's at once contemplative and suspenseful.” —Kirkus starred review

Review:

"Twelve-year-old Mila has remarkable powers of observation, but even more impressive is her insight into people's minds. This may be why her college-professor father takes her with him from London to America to track down his oldest friend, who has suddenly disappeared, leaving his wife and young son behind. The mission, which takes them through upstate New York, is more complicated than Mila expects, with clues not quite adding up and disturbing secrets unveiled, including the realization that her father hasn't been entirely honest. Teeming with complex adult problems — infidelity, marital collapse, the death of a child — this thought-provoking coming-of-age story requires that readers be at least as mature as Mila as she confronts unpleasant truths. Yet Rosoff's (There Is No Dog) writing isn't all gloom and doom. Mila's sharp observations of the people she meets and the winter landscape add a fresh, poetic aura to her discoveries and the novel as a whole. 'The sun is shining, the sky impossible blue,' she thinks. 'The world looks so dazzling, I almost can't bear to look at it.' Ages 12 — up. Agent: Zoe Pagnamenta, Zoe Pagnamenta Agency."
