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 by a powerful loneliness, a woman who many referred to as troubled waters.

When Imogene is seventeen, her father, now a famous author of medical mysteries, strikes out in the middle of the night and doesn’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. She decides to put to use the skills she’s gleaned from a lifetime of her father’s books to track down a woman she’s never known, in order to find him and, perhaps, the answer to the question she’s carried with her for her entire life.

WHy wait

1. Books that deal with mental health always seem to catch my attention. They open my eyes to all sorts of mental states that I wouldn’t have thought possible.

2. “Imogene is convinced he’s looking for her mother.” This is both creepy and intriguing and I AM EXCITED.

3. MANY MENTIONS OF BOOKISH THINGS. My booknerd heart is exploding.
a. “her mother is the bedtime story her father told her as a child”
   b. “now a famous author of medical mysteries”
   c. “skills she’s gleaned from a lifetime of her father’s books

4. THE COVER ITSELF IS SO PRETTY AND INTRIGUING. The blue! <3

5. This is Rebecca’s YA debut! Let’s support debut authors, yes? :)

YOUR TURN!

PRE-ORDER THE MYSTERY OF HOLLOW PLACES!

  2. This book sounds very spine tingling and interesting. I’m totally getting some darker vibes from this and usually stuff like this doesn’t interest me too much, but this one is an exception!

  3. I have the audiobook of this and plan to read it next. I’m often drawn to books with mental health issues as well… which is weird because I used to totally avoid them like the plague. Now I’m always intrigued by them. It’s a very interesting topic, for sure! :)
