About the Book
 
All Imogene Scott knows of her mother is the bedtime story her father told her as a child. It’s the story of how her parents met: he, a forensic pathologist; she, a mysterious woman who came to identify a body. A woman who left Imogene and her father when she was a baby, a woman who was always possessed of a powerful loneliness, a woman who many referred to a troubled waters.
 
Now Imogene is seventeen, and her father, a famous author of medical mysteries, has struck out in the middle of the night and hasn’t come back. Neither Imogene’s stepmother nor the police know where he could’ve gone, but Imogene is convinced he’s looking for her mother. And she decides it’s up to her to put to use the skills she’s gleaned from a lifetime of reading her father’s books to track down a woman she’s only known in stories, in order to find him and, perhaps, the answer to the question she’s carried with her for her entire life.
 
Rebecca Podos’s debut is a powerful, affecting story of the pieces of ourselves that remain mysteries even to us, and the desperate search through empty spaces for something to hold on to.

The cover of the book seems really neat, especially the text. After reading the synopsis, I just have question after question about Imogene's family. How much does she miss her mother, if at all? How does her stepmother feel about her birth mother? Why would her dad go out and look for her mom, now of all times? I need to find out~!!!
