Blackwell North Amer
On an evening like any other, nine-year-old Katie Mackey, daughter of the most affluent family in a small town on the plains of Indiana, sets out on her bicycle to return some library books.
This simple act is at the heart of The Bright Forever, a suspenseful novel about the choices people make that change their lives forever. Keeping fact, speculation, and contradiction playing off one another as the details unfold, author Lee Martin creates a fast-paced story that is as gripping as it is richly human. His prose builds to a nuanced portrayal of the complicated give and take among people struggling to maintain their humanity in the shadow of a loss.

I really liked the way this was written. I felt for each of the characters, could understand their motivations, even for the deeds which were not "pure" or virtuous. Terrible to imagine losing a child.
