My Rating: 4 Stars

A tense and gripping read that plumbs the depths of grief and longing. Leave No Trace is as thrilling as a whitewater rapid and as dark as the Minnesotan wilderness itself.” —Amy Gentry, internationally bestselling author of Good as Gone

“Dark and atmospheric, with palpably vivid details and complex characters harboring plenty of secrets, Leave No Trace is the perfect combination of gorgeous prose and edge-of-your-seat storytelling.” —Kimberly Belle, internationally bestselling author of The Marriage Lie

“This novel deserves the top-spot on your reading list!”—Hannah Mary McKinnon, author of The Neighbors

From 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 later.

There is a place in Minnesota with hundreds of miles of glacial lakes and untouched forests called the Boundary Waters. Ten years ago a man and his son trekked into this wilderness and never returned.

 

Search teams found their campsite ravaged by what looked like a bear. They were presumed dead until a decade later...the son appeared. Discovered while ransacking an outfitter store, he was violent and uncommunicative and sent to a psychiatric facility. Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist, is charged with making a connection with their high-profile patient. No matter how she tries, however, he refuses to answer questions about his father or the last ten years of his life.

 

But Maya, who was abandoned by her own mother, has secrets, too. And as she’s drawn closer to this enigmatic boy who is no longer a boy, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father who has disappeared from the known world.

Leave No Trace examines the mysterious disappearance of a father and his 9-year-old son into the Minnesota wilderness and then the even more mysterious return of the son 10 years later. Tasked to make a connection with the violent, uncommunicative and somewhat feral 19-year-old is Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist of the psychiatric facility he’s housed in.

 

But Maya, who was abandoned by her own mother, has secrets, too. And as she’s drawn closer to this enigmatic boy who is no longer a boy, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father who has disappeared from the known world.

 

Mejia’s psychological thriller Everything You Want Me To Be was published last January. It was listed in People’s Best New Books Pick, The Wall Street Journal’s Best New Mysteries, named one of 2017’s Best Fiction Books by Bustle.com and compared to The Lovely Bones and Everything I Never Told You by Marie Clare.

 

“Everything You Want Me To Be was one of 2017’s most successful thriller debuts,” Bestler said, “For all those readers clamoring for Mindy’s next book, we’re extremely pleased to say that it’s on its way!”
