Laura was right. This was a great book. And sometimes when you’re (technically) unemployed and it’s summer and you’re working part time and surrounded by people you know from your last job, you need to read a slam novel about someone who goes missing. Because it’s one thing to be theoretically lost. And it’s quite another to be missing.
Pittard’s style reminded me a lot of Jennifer Egan’s. In the I-want-to-read-everything-she-writes way. In the watch-out-Pulitzer-2019 way. This is a (very) promising first novel. And I hate that I returned it the first time I checked it out from the library. But I was ready this time. My uncertainty made me ready. Jesus.
