The Gone Book

Helena Close

Little Island

I know you’ll hate me. But I can’t help it. I’m going to find you.

Matt’s mam left home when he was 10. He writesletters to her but doesn’t send them. He keeps them in his Gone Book, which he hides in his room. Five years of letters about his life. Five years of hurt.

Matt’s dad won’t talk about her. His older brother is mixed up with drugs. His friends, Mikey and Anna, are the best thing in his life, but Matt keeps pushing them away. All Matt wants to do is skate, surf, and forget. But now his mam is back in town and Matt knows he needs to find her, to finally deliver the truth.
