Description


"Hope can be hard to hold on to."
When thirteen-year-old Jody goes missing, the national spotlight turns to Samara Taylor's small town of Pineview. With few clues for investigators to follow, everyone is a suspect, including Jody's older brother, Nick. But even as the town rallies in solidarity, Sam feels more alone than ever. Her mother is drifting farther and farther away while her father grows increasingly preoccupied as he steps in to help Jody's family in the wake of the disappearance. During the tense, uncomfortable days that follow, Sam draws closer to Nick as the local tragedy intersects with her personal one.
National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr delivers a powerful novel (originally published under the title "Once Was Lost") about community, family, faith, and one girl's realization that sometimes you have to lose everything to find what's been missing all along.
