Then You Were Gone by Lauren Strasnick
To be published: January 8, 2013 by Simon Pulse
In the tradition of 13 Reasons Why, a suspenseful and heart-wrenching novel from the author of Nothing Like You and Her and Me and You.
Two years ago, Adrienne’s best friend walked out of her life. One week ago, she left Adrienne a desperate, muffled voicemail. Adrienne never called back.
Now Dakota is missing. She left behind a string of broken hearts, a flurry of rumors, and a suicide note.
Adrienne can’t stop obsessing over what might have happened if she’d answered Dakota’s call. And she’s increasingly convinced that Dakota must still be alive.
Maybe finding and saving Dakota is the only way Adrienne can save herself.
Or maybe it’s too late for them both. [goodreads]
I read Strasnick's novel Nothing Like You awhile back and the rawness of her writing has stuck with me ever since. So when I saw that she was publishing something new, I immediately added it to my TBR list. This particular story sounds like it will be nothing short of intense.
