Spotlight on GONE, GONE, GONE by Hannah Moskowitz

Hannah Moskowitz is one of my favorite authors, both her books and her Twitter personality, so when a new book of hers comes out, I jump at the chance to spotlight it. Her latest release is GONE, GONE, GONE, out this month from Simon Pulse.

Summary from GoodReads:

In the wake of the post-9/11 sniper shootings, fragile love finds a stronghold in this intense, romantic novel from the author of Break and Invincible Summer.

It's a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge and trying to make sense of these random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives. Craig’s crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him...and if he’ll do it again...and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.Lio feels most alive when he's with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable...and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.

This intense, romantic novel from the author of Break and Invincible Summer is a poignant look at what it is to feel needed, connected, and alive.

 The subject matter of this book may not have been my normal reading fare, but I'm so glad I picked up this book. Hannah Moskowitz's writing style is a treat--so different, so inside the heads of the main characters it's almost a stream of consciousness. Plus, I love a good real-world book, and what is more real-world than living life in the midst of local sniper shootings? Something you can't do anything about, but are forced to live with. I couldn't have imagined what it would be like to live through something like that, but now I can. The underlying sniper fear that each character deals with in their own way was so delicately woven into the story of two boys and their very strong relational fears.

Every time I read a book by Hannah Moskowitz I feel like it stretches my understanding of the world.  You can pick up a copy of GONE, GONE, GONE now from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or your local independent retailer.

"Every time I read a book my Hannah Moskowitz I feel like it stretches my understanding of the world." That's about the best compliment you can give an author or a book. This one does sound amazing.
