From the New York Times bestselling authors of All the Bright Places and Every Day comes a story of hope, family, and finding your home in the people who matter the most.
Subject: You. Missing.
Ezra Ahern wakes up one day to find his older sister, Bea, gone. No note, no sign, nothing but an email address hidden somewhere only he would find it. Ezra never expected to be left behind with their abusive stepfather and their neglectful mother – how is he supposed to navigate life without Bea?
Bea Ahern already knew she needed to get as far away from home as possible. But a message in her inbox changes everything, and she finds herself alone in a new city – without Ez, without a real plan – chasing someone who might not even want to be found.
As things unravel at home for Ezra, Bea confronts secrets about their past that will forever change the way they think about their family. Together and apart, broken by abuse but connected by love, this brother and sister must learn to trust themselves before they can find a way back to each other.
Well, this broke my heart, and then mended it because of the kindness of strangers, not real strangers but those not related by blood that becomes your real family. Ezra’s sister Bea disappears right before she is supposed to graduate high school and leaves him home with his abusive father and negligent mother. Bea hides an email address that only Ezra would be able to find and the story is detailed through the email between brother and sister.
Bea discovers a dark family secret that spurs the two siblings to hit their breaking point and confront their fears. Ezra isn’t alone, he has the support of his boyfriend, Terrance who supplies the family he needs. Friends also pick up the slack where his parents have left him hanging. This story is beautifully written to provide hope to those in similar situations. The dialogue between the siblings reflects similar bonds I easily recognized in my own family.
