Description

A bittersweet homecoming holds dark secrets in this heart-wrenching story of loss, love, and survival for readers of Room

When sixteen-year-old Amy returns home, she can't tell her family what's happened to her. She can't tell them where she's been since she and her best friend, her cousin Dee, were kidnapped six years ago--who stole them from their families or what's become of Dee. She has to stay silent because she's afraid of what might happen next, and she's desperate to protect her secrets at any cost. Amy tries to readjust to life at "home," but nothing she does feels right. She's a stranger in her own family, and the guilt that she's the one who returned is insurmountable. Amy soon realizes that keeping secrets won't change what's happened, and they may end up hurting those she loves the most. She has to go back in order to move forward, risking everything along the way. Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee is a riveting, affecting story of loss and hope.

Review quote

Praise for Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee "An intelligent, tense psychological drama."--Kirkus Reviews "Thompson expertly builds the novel's tension to an unbearable pitch as she guides readers to a bittersweet, satisfying conclusion."--Publishers Weekly "Fans of realistic fiction and similar titles, such as Emma Donoghue's Room, Lucy Christopher's Stolen, and April Henry's Girl, Stolen, will devour this novel."--School Library Journal "[A] traumatic, psychologically taut novel... Thompson deals honestly with the guilt and grief of Amy and her family, and, though grim, this tearjerker has a thankfully hopeful resolution."--Booklist "Teens who relish abduction stories will be most satisfied with this book."--VOYA "Thompson adeptly walks readers through the lingering trauma and misplaced guilt that Amy feels... this takes readers on a credible hell-and-back ride that fleshes out the tangled emotions behind recent ripped-from-the-headlines scenarios."--BCCB
