Leave No TraceFrom the author of the “compelling” Star Tribune Minneapolis and critically acclaimed Everything You Want Me to Be a riveting and suspenseful thriller about the mysterious disappearance of a boy and his stunning return ten years laterThere is a place in Minnesota with hundreds of miles of glacial lakes and untouched forests called the Boundary Waters Ten years ago a man an Happy Pub Day Belief is a powerful thing It grabs you unmakes you changes the tilt and angle of everything around you into an entirely different geometry You see the world in a new shape and no matter how horrible the belief no matter what awful things it makes you do a part of you is still grateful for the structureI'm 2 for 2 out of the Mindy Mejia books I've read so far and I love it Her novels are lightning uick and tend to hover just above the line between thought provoking and taboo She's unafraid to cross lines that make readers uncomfortable and yet she does it with impeccable care and the sensitivity needed to keep readers from becoming turned off It's the old scenario where the characters personal lives are an utter train wreck that we can't help rubbernecking alongside for 300 pages The cover does a superb job of setting the tone and vibe of Leave No Trace and as you pick it up to begin you can't help but be transported to rural Minnesota in preparation of the wicked journey to come Seasoned psych thrillerdomestic drama readers may be able to solve some of the pieces to this puzzle ahead of their reveals but I found that to only be one portion of what panned out to be an engaging read I'm not entirely sure whether to put this into the category of plot or character driven; there is a copious amount of character development as these portions are the foundation building up to the climax of the story but there were also some tense action packed scenes as well a la Mission Impossible style Dun dun dun nah dun dun dun na wheeep a whoooooo wheep a whooooo wheep a wooooo BAM While you will have to suspend your need for a realistic plot with this one it was so much fun that I couldn't make myself care about silly facts and all that I will say that I'm wholly impressed with the amount of research that went into the very real stories and inspiration for the Blackthorns story of the Lykovs and the Ho Vans Mejia did such a fantastic job with these that it has lit a fire in me to search out information on these brave and solitary families 100 points to Mejia's Hogwart's house for including intriguing history in her fiction If you enjoyed Mindy's previous novel Everything You Want Me To Be then I highly recommend you check out Leave No Trace as well If you're new to her books this one is a great place to start and you can just work your way backwards because trust me you'll want to read everything she writes You may now return to your regularly scheduled afternoon while I sit over here in a corner waiting for MM next novel 3 I received a copy for review via the publisher
