About the Book

Nine months ago, Danny disappeared and everything changed for his friends. Rae’s pouring herself into rage-baking. Deenie's deepening her commitment to Orthodox Judaism. And Ellie—Danny’s best friend and girlfriend—is the only one who doesn’t believe he’s dead.

Because she still sees him.

Moving back and forth between past and present, the story of Ellie and Danny unspools, from their serendipitous meeting to Danny and Ellie falling for each other. In the past, they were the perfect couple—until it all went wrong. In the present, Ellie’s looking for answers. Her friends are worried about her mental health, but Ellie’s certain that the tragedy that’s rocked their modern Orthodox community isn’t as simple as they all believe. She’s determined to uncover the truth about what happened to the love of her life. But to do that, she’ll have to be more honest with herself.

About the Author

Leah Scheier is a pediatrician and the author of SECRET LETTERS, a historical mystery featuring the daughter of the Great Detective, YOUR VOICE IS ALL I HEAR, a contemporary YA novel about a girl whose first love is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and RULES OF RAIN, a story about the evolution of a sibling relationship as Ethan, a teen on the spectrum, struggles to break away from his twin sister, Rain, who has always protected him. 

During the day Leah waves around a pink stethoscope and Smurf stickers; at night she bangs on her battered computer and drinks too much caffeine. Feel free to contact her through her author webpage or through twitter!
