Dead to You by Lisa McMann is a one sitting read - this is high praise from me because this means that I couldn't stop thinking about the story until I sat down and finished the book. Imagine that you were abducted as a young child only to be left at a youth home in Nebraska as a teen and then after running away from the home you are homeless and searching for the truth of who you are. Ethan (with the help of a wonderful librarian!) searches the internet trying to find his identity. He does and we begin with the tearful reunion with his family. We always think that life will be rosy for these lucky kids and families who are brought back together but it must be quite an adjustment. Some in the family welcome him with open arms but Ethan's younger brother, Blake is not one of them. Add to the mix a great looking girl next door and it is one hard hitting, heart wrenching story that rings with an air of truth.
While language and adult situations may be too much for younger audiences I would suggest that teens and their parents will sigh after reading this book and say - thank God this isn't us...
