I was thankful for a sick little boy as it gave me some time on this three day weekend to get some reading done. I cannot remember how this book came on my radar but I had ordered it in December and it's been sitting on my shelf begging me to read it. I loved this book for the mild mystery as well as the voice of Mila, the main character. She is a young girl from London who travels to upstate New York with her father to investigate the disappearance of her father's best friend. What she learns from this is that adults are confusing and that growing up is hard. I could see this book being used in a coming of age theme or as a page turning independent read. I plan on putting in my library collection and book talking it! It will be checked out, I can tell. It's a great mystery story that also makes you think about what happens when you do find out the truth. ( )

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.

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

This definitely made me eager to check out Rosoff's other work, particularly How I Live Now. It was a tense sort of mystery story with a well-drawn (if almost too precocious) narrator trying to make sense of the ineffable world of adulthood. ( )

Liked the voice of the narrator, but found the story dragged and didn't have enough oomph in the climax to satisfy me. The big betrayal mentioned on the back jacket blurb wasn't as shocking as I'd anticipated and overall the book just left me with nothing memorable except the fresh description provided by Mila. ( )
