Printz Award-winning author Meg Rosoff's latest novel is a gorgeous and unforgettable page-turner about the relationship between parents and children, love and loss. Mila has an exceptional talent for reading a room--sensing hidden facts and unspoken emotions from clues that others overlook. So when her father's best friend, Matthew, goes missing from his upstate New York home, Mila and her beloved father travel from London to find him. She collects information about Matthew from his belongings, from his wife and baby, from the dog he left behind and from the ghosts of his past--slowly piecing together the story everyone else has missed. But just when she's closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A melancholy and ruminative book that is part travelogue, part mystery, and part coming-of-age…Beautifully written, full of keen observation.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “This thought-provoking coming-of-age story requires that readers be at least as mature as Mila as she confronts unpleasant truths…Mila’s sharp observations of the people she meets and the winter landscape add a fresh, poetic aura to her discoveries and the novel as a whole.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Narrator Suzy Jackson reflects the shifting viewpoints of twelve-year-old Mila as a trip to America with her beloved father is transformed when his best friend goes missing. Mila swings into sleuth mode, determined to discover the missing man’s whereabouts. Jackson’s perceptive performance captures Mila’s pride at collecting clues that escape the adults and her confusion over facts that refuse to add up. Mila’s not the only detective; there’s a greater mystery at hand. As the plot darkens, and lies emerge, Jackson portrays Mila’s struggle to piece together the complexities of the adult world in which Mila finds herself.”


  • “With strong characters and a well-articulated plot, Picture Me Gone is a welcome addition to any collection. The author accurately captures this mature adolescent’s view of adults without condescension or judgment, a feat worthy of praise.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Rosoff, who writes each of her books differently (and often brilliantly), shapes this story as much by form and intuitions as by events…There’s no condescension or compromise to the obvious audience either in premise or prose. It’s another choice, one that allows the book to offer its many insights on the human condition to a widespread readership.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “A brilliant depiction of the complexity of human relationships in a story that’s at once contemplative and suspenseful.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • A New York Times Book Review Notable Book for Children for 2013
