The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S. (as told to his brother)
By (author): David Levithan
9781984848598 Hardcover English Juvenile: Age (years) from 8 - 12, Grade (US) from 3 - 7 JUVENILE FICTION / LGBT Feb 02, 2021
$22.99 CAD
Active 5.75 x 8.56 x 0.8 in | 0.74 lb 224 pages Random House Children's Books Knopf Books for Young Readers
New York Times bestselling author David Levithan takes young readers on twisting journey through truth, reality, and fantasy and belief.

Aidan disappeared for six days. Six agonizing days of searches and police and questions and constant vigils. Then, just as suddenly as he vanished, Aidan reappears. Where has he been? The story he tells is simply…impossible. But it’s the story Aidan is sticking to.

His brother, Lucas, wants to believe him. But Lucas is aware of what other people, including their parents, are saying: that Aidan is making it all up to disguise the fact that he ran away.

When the kids in school hear Aidan’s story, they taunt him. But still Aidan clings to his story. And as he becomes more of an outcast, Lucas becomes more and more concerned. Being on Aidan’s side would mean believing in the impossible. But how can you believe in the impossible when everything and everybody is telling you not to?

A noteworthy publication! This is David’s first venture into middle grade territory as an author, and the result is mesmerizing.

David Levithan is already a leading figure in YA literature, beloved by librarians, booksellers, kids, and parents. This is a natural next step for him, and audiences will be wondering what took him so long.

Reality with a twist: Recommend this to fans of When You Reach Me, From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and Greystone Secrets: The Strangers.

This poignant story of brothers, truth, and belief—with a “did-he-or-didn’t-he?” puzzle at its core—will provide multiple ins for booksellers and educators.

Publication follows (by a season) the Netflix adapation of TWELVE DAYS OF DASH & LILY, which will run Fall 2020.

When not writing during spare hours on weekends, David Levithan is editorial director at Scholastic and the founding editor of the PUSH imprint, which is devoted to finding new voices and new authors in teen literature. His acclaimed novels Boy Meets Boy and The Realm of Possibility started as stories he wrote for his friends for Valentine’s Day (something he’s done for the past 22 years and counting) that turned themselves into teen novels. He’s often asked if the book is a work of fantasy or a work of reality, and the answer is right down the middle—it’s about where we’re going, and where we should be.

A well-paced story about the collision of realities in the vein of Laura E. Weymouth and Seanan McGuire.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review 

[A] superb story…. Levithan’s first book for middle-grade readers is an unqualified success.” –Booklist, starred review

“Engaging…. the matter-of-fact inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters is noteworthy. A thought-provoking title for sophisticated readers.” –Kirkus Reviews

“A stellar novel that deftly examines the uncomfortable reality that not everything has a satisfying answer. For example, sometimes people go away and we’re lucky if they come back, and we may be better off focusing less on where they’ve been but on the fact that they’ve returned.” –The Bulletin

"An insightful story, with echoes of Narnia, that will appeal to thoughtful and sophisticated readers.” —School Library Journal
