Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz
Set in the shadow of 9/11 and during the nightmare of the Beltway sniper, it's amazing how something so recent can feel like it's coming from a completely different time. Can something set 10 years ago qualify as historical fiction? The references to email and IM certainly help it. But it never feels dated, it feels authentic. Craig and Lio are two characters that I've never seen before in YA. They aren't defined by any one characteristic, quality, or event. They're on very different paths but I found myself really hoping that those paths would converge. This is definitely a book worth checking out.
Check out Hanna Moskowitz's website.
I received an advance review copy from Simon & Schuster Galley Grab.
