I Know You Remember

Jennifer Donaldson. Razorbill, $18.99 (336p) ISBN 978-1-59514-854-4
Ruthie, 17, is glad to be heading back to Anchorage, Alaska, her hometown until she was 14, even though the reason for the trip is her mother’s sudden death. She’s not sure about moving in with her father and his new family, but her best friend, Zahra, still lives there, and Ruthie looks forward to picking up where they left off. There are two problems, though: not only has Zahra changed drastically since Ruthie left, she has also disappeared. Determined to find her, Ruthie inserts herself into Zahra’s friend group and gets involved in the search, which takes her through hiking trails and deserted campgrounds, as well as old secrets. Donaldson (Lies You Never Told Me) tells a suspenseful, surprising story with a vivid sense of place. And in Ruthie, Donaldson has created a driven, fearless—even reckless—character who will stop at nothing to track down her best friend and recreate the relationship she’s so desperately missed. Ages 14–up. (Oct.)
