Last Seen Leaving by Kelly Braffet

As she did in her darkly thrilling debut, Josie and Jack, Kelly Braffet again explores the often ambiguous nature of love and danger in a riveting novel of suspense. When twenty-something drifter Miranda Cassidy wrecks her car one night on the way home from a bar, she seizes the accident as an opportunity to reinvent her life. Hitching a ride with a mysterious stranger, she finds quick work and a fresh start hundreds of miles away in an oceanside vacation town. She doesn’t look back, figuring no one is going to miss her. But when her mother finds no forwarding address, she senses something terrible has happened. The memory of the tragic disappearance of Miranda’s father years before and the force of long-buried emotions drive her on a frantic quest to find her daughter, no matter what the cost.

Read this for a class and I really fell in love with it. Braffet is an up and coming author with wonderful prose and great insight. A mashup of mystery, literature, and a road narative, combined with great execution.

I loved the back and forth between mother and daughter's story. Excellent writing and a good plot but story finished up too fast with lots of questions about fathers ending.

Slow paced and boring

This is not about the novel..this is about the ridiculous postings that appear on these pages. How childish and worthless they are...please take the time to report them when they appear. Maybe something will be done to stop this waste of space.

I, Bluestar, have 12 kits that need rpers. Some are already apprentises. Here's the entire list of apprentises that need rpers:<> &bull; Shadowpaw<br> &bull; Silverpaw<br> &bull; Firepaw<br> &bull; Stripepaw<br> &bull; Duskpaw<br> &bull; Mosspaw<p> Here is the list of kits that need rpers:<br> &bull; Talonkit<br> &bull; Opalkit<br> &bull; Forestkit<br> &bull; Everkit<br> &bull; Skykit<br> &bull; Winterkit<br> &bull; Swirlingkit<p> Only Mosspaw is not mine. Ask Wingdust or Thornfall about him. Not me. And for my kits, as long as you are active, just start rping. No need to ask unless they are taken. Read their corresponding bios please first. The rest will be out within a couple days. This is a message from Lightclan (located at 'help me' results one and three). Thank you for your time. Bluestar.
