A redemptive and captivating novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of PS. I Love You.
Ever wondered where lost things go?
Ever since the day her classmate vanished, Sandy Shortt has been haunted by what happens when something – or someone – disappears. Finding has become her goal.
Jack Ruttle is desperate to find his younger brother who vanished into thin air a year ago. He spots an ad for Sandy’s missing persons agency and is certain that she will answer his prayers and find his brother.
But then Sandy disappears too, stumbling upon a place that is a world away from the only one she has ever known. Now all she wants, more than anything, is to find her way home.
This began as a humorous question of where do all the odd socks disappear to? I wanted to create a world where all the missing things go, playful at first, but then so much more goes missing; people disappear, and at stages in our lives we can lose a sense of ourselves, and so it graduated to a deeper darker book about losing and finding; how the lead character Sandy Shortt literally wanders off the wrong path in life and finds herself in a world she doesn’t recognise, along with the story of Jack who is not just searching for his missing brother but for closure so that he
can move on.
Brilliant... beautifully bittersweet.
Addictive, compelling and wonderfully well written.
