Picture Me Gone

Mila has an extraordinary gift - she can read the emotions of those around her.  This becomes a blessing and maybe a curse when she and her father travel to New York from England to visit an old friend, Matt.  Just before they arrive in New York, Matt goes missing.  Mila and her father begin a quest to find him.  As Mila senses the emotions of those who knew Matt best, including her father, the mystery of his disappearance deepens.  What Mila eventually finds may test her understanding of love and family. 

In Picture Me Gone, author Meg Rosoff once again produces an unforgettable novel about the relationship between parents and children, love and loss.  Mila is a likable and realistic character you will want to get to know better.  If you are unfamiliar with Rosoff's work you should also read her first novel, How I Live Now.      KR
