Summary: Mila is on a roadtrip across the USA with her father. They are looking for his best friend but Mila discovers a more important truth. Sometimes the act of searching reveals more than the final discovery can. Adults do not have all the answers. It all depends what questions you ask.

Picture Me Gone: written by award winning author of How I Live Now. This book seemed like a thrilling, fast-paced mystery that turned out to be a dreary, put-down-able, book that simply lacked a bit of everything. The beginning of the book starts off as though it will lead to something extraordinary and adrenaline packed but once you get past that first chapter you can’t help but think, when is this going to really take off? And you think that for the rest of the book, hoping that at some point something will happen that will change the course of the story.

Mila is an interesting character that I loved to read about. That was probably the only good thing written in all of the 208 pages.

I know this is a short review but I really can’t think of anything else to say. The book was ‘eh’ *shoulder shrug*, and therefore was a massive let down from my original hopes. It sort of explains why most bookshops don’t actually stock the book even though it was written by such a famous, well established, author.
