The Leaving

Image result for the leaving 

This book was pretty intense.  Eleven years ago 6 kindergarten students disappeared.  No one ever found a trace of them.  Then... 5 of them returned with no memories.  Where was Max - the 6th child?  As the 5 try to make sense of what happened in the 11 years they discover clues - hidden talents, a tattoo, something swallowed. Told from the point of view of some who left and others who stayed the mystery slowly unravels.  

I was captivated.  This was a really interesting premise and some of the twists I did not see coming.  There was some swearing and some sexual content mild which makes the book inappropriate for my audience but I did like the book and would recommend to older readers.
