  • Debut novel!
  • Unreliable narrator: Recent bestsellers like We Were Liars and Challenger Deep have shown that unreliable narrators are on the rise, and The Letting Go’s brilliant protagonist is the perfect unreliable narrator. Readers will find themselves at once afraid of the killer and unsure if there even is one; the thrill of uncertainty is sure to keep those pages turning.
  • Unconventional structure: Told in journal entries, papers, flashbacks, and snippets of poetry, The Letting Go’s nontraditional structure is as intriguing as the story itself. Readers will be awed as the suspenseful story unfolds in a structure that’s seamless, satisfying, and fresh.
  • Emily Dickinson: Teens love Emily Dickinson, and this book reads like a literary love letter to the introverted poet. The book is sure to be treasured by every teen who loves and relates to Dickinson’s poetry and her unique life.
  • Educator potential: Impeccably researched and stunningly written, this book brings Emily Dickinson to life in a way that English Literature courses rarely manage; teachers might well consider using the book to get their students excited about Dickinson, or incorporating it into their Common Core curricula.
  • Literary writing: Deborah Markus’s writing is stunning and brilliant—the kind of writing and plotting that, like Laura Ruby’s Bone Gap, Neal Shusterman’s Challenger Deep, and John Corey Whaley’s Where Things Come Back, racks up accolades, awards, and attention. This should be a strong contender in the literary market, and will get some buzz around awards season.
  • LGBTQ appeal: The lesbian romance in this book is incidental and beautifully painted, as much about friendship and support as it is about love. Readers of all sexualities will love shipping this book’s pair, and the story answers the call of #WeNeedDiverseBooks for more incidental diversity.
