For fans of"Love Letters to the Dead"and"I ll Give You the Sun"comes a heartrending story of a teen who sets out on an unusual quest. For months, Tallie McGovern has been coping with the death of her older brother the only way she knows how: by smiling bravely and pretending that she s okay. She s managed to fool her friends, her parents, and her teachers, yet she can t even say his name out loud: "N " is as far as she can go. Then Tallie comes across a letter in the mail, and it only takes two words to crack the careful facade she s built up: ORGAN DONOR. Two words that had apparently been checked off on her brother s driver s license; two words that her parents knew about and never revealed to her. All at once, everything Tallie thought she understood about her brother s death feels like a lie. And although a part of her knows he s gone forever, another part of her wonders if finding the letter might be a sign. That if she can just track down the people on the other end of those two words, it might somehow bring him back. Hannah Barnaby s deeply moving novel asks questions there are no easy answers to as it follows a family struggling to pick up the pieces, and a girl determined to find the brother she wasn t ready to let go of."
