From award-winning poet Carrie Fountain comes a debut audiobook set in Las Cruces, New Mexico, about a half-Latina girl stepping outside of the shadow of her best friend. It's senior year, and Miranda Black's best friend, Syd, has run away-suddenly and inexplicably, leaving behind nothing but a pink leopard print cell phone with a text message from the mysterious HIM. Everyone wants to know why Syd left, but the truth is, Miranda has no idea. When Miranda's mother abandoned her as a child, Miranda had found shelter in her friendship with Syd, who wore her own motherlessness like a badge of honor. Now Miranda's been left behind again, left to untangle the questions of why Syd left, where she is-and if she's even a friend worth saving, all while stumbling into first love with the most unlikely boy in school. How do you take on the future when it feels like so much of your past wasn't even real? Praise for I'm Not Missing: "I savored and cherished this funny, tender, poetic novel about yearning, love, loss, ambition, and the big questions of life."-Margo Rabb, author of Kissing in America and Cures for Heartbreak "This book has won my heart."-Naomi Shihab Nye, author of Habibi

"Narrator Rebecca Soler navigates listeners through Miranda Black's unexpected senior year. Bonded by the disappearances of their mothers at a young age, Miranda and Syd have a friendship that is as constant as the red in the dirt of Las Cruces, New Mexico. But when Syd disappears and Miranda learns the truth about the embarrassing prom fiasco known as the "the Nick Allison incident," Miranda starts to rethink their power dynamic. Soler's range allows her to flow seamlessly between the story's unfolding mystery and its romance. Soler captures the mixed emotions of the curious yet doubting half-Latina protagonist. Soler's delivery highlights the poetic aspects of this story and downplays any predictably in Miranda's search for herself and her loved ones. E.A.N. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
