If you’re anything like us, you’re firmly in denial about the end of summer looming on the horizon. Put off the inevitable and hunker down with one of these absorbing novels that we haven’t been able to stop thinking about.
Summer reads don’t have to be light and breezy. Reading an engrossing, transporting novel that tackles serious and difficult topics can also be a rewarding way to enjoy summer days when schedules are looser and minds may be less cluttered.
As a fan of domestic fiction, I read a lot of what I call “parent’s worst nightmare” books. (Why I am drawn to these books is another story for another issue…) A large subset of parent’s worst nightmare books are about disappearing kids.
