A Place Called Here

by Cecelia Ahern

eBooks of the Month Family Drama

LoveReading View on A Place Called Here

I recommend this to anyone from teenage to 80. I think Cecelia is a real star, a young writer who conjures up big emotions in clever, unusual stories. This one is a bit strange and involves a place somewhere else where missing things turn up, even missing people. It might sound far-fetched but it is enchantingly done, a joy to read. Highly recommended as, indeed, are all her books.

Similar this month: None but try Penelope Evans.
Comparison: Ben Sherwood, Alice Sebold.

A Place Called Here Synopsis

Ever since the day her classmate Jenny-May Butler vanished, Sandy Shortt has been haunted by what happens when something - or someone - disappears. Finding has become her goal.

Jack Ruttle is desperate to find his younger brother Donal who vanished into thin air a year ago. So then he spots an ad for Sandy's missing persons agency, he's certain that she will answer his prayers and find his missing brother.

 

But then Sandy disappears too, stumbling upon a place that is a world away from the only one she has ever known. Now all she wants, more than anything, is to find her way home.
