Release Date: June 20th 2016
Edge of 22 Publishing
If You’re Gone traces a trying summer for rising high school senior Lillian White as she struggles to cope with the sudden disappearance of her boyfriend, Brad Lee – reported missing the morning after his graduation ceremony. When law enforcement dismisses the case and classifies Brad as voluntarily missing, Lillian becomes desperate to prove that he couldn’t have just walked away. Not from his friends. Not from his family. Not from her.
Launching her own investigation into the darker side of her small North Carolina town, Lillian begins to uncover secrets from Brad’s past that force her to question everything she thought she knew about him and their relationship.
“Soul-stirring… Truly one of the most innovative voices to come along in a while. Goodwin has weaved an engaging web of deceit and intrigue that embodies not only her storytelling prowess but highlights her visionary filmmaking abilities in novel form.” (Justin Price, creator of ‘Future’ SVOD channel)
I would rate If You’re Gone 5 out of 5 stars! I really liked how I never got bored throughout the book, which happens in about 75% of the books I read. I would have never figured out the ending, but I do wish it was more intense. Although it didn’t seem boring, I felt like it was dragging bon, as if the author was getting bored at writing that part.
It was definitely worth reading. I would recommend it to any friend who enjoys the categories
- Soft Mystery (Opposite of intense mystery)
- Realistic Fiction
- Young Adult
