PICTURE ME GONE
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
Rosoff’s latest is smart and original. The narration is overwhelmingly internal, a style that would be overly intimate if not for Mila’s addictively oddball voice. She’s the perfect storyteller for a drily hilarious recounting of a road trip populated by characters who, filtered through Mila’s head, are fascinating without exception.
Mila was named for a dog. She doesn’t know much about the pup, but she’s struck by their commonalities — Mila the girl can sense things unspoken, feelings unrevealed and secrets hidden with uncanny, almost animalistic, instinct. So when her father’s best friend goes missing — vacating the life he’s created with his wife and child — Mila and her beloved dad vow to uncover the missing man’s whereabouts. (PUTNAM, Oct., 256 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780399257650, HC, 12 & Up)
