The Reese’s Book Club October Pick!

From the #1 bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere, comes one of the most highly anticipated books of the year – the inspiring new novel about a mother’s unbreakable love in a world consumed by fear.

 
“It’s impossible not to be moved.” —Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Riveting, tender, and timely.” —People, Book of the Week

“Thought-provoking, heart-wrenching…I was so invested in the future of this mother and son, and I can’t wait to hear what you think of this deeply suspenseful story!” – Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club October ’22 Pick)

Twelve-year-old Bird Gardner lives a quiet existence with his loving but broken father, a former linguist who now shelves books in a university library. Bird knows to not ask too many questions, stand out too much, or stray too far. For a decade, their lives have been governed by laws written to preserve “American culture” in the wake of years of economic instability and violence. To keep the peace and restore prosperity, the authorities are now allowed to relocate children of dissidents, especially those of Asian origin, and libraries have been forced to remove books seen as unpatriotic—including the work of Bird’s mother, Margaret, a Chinese American poet who left the family when he was nine years old.
 
Bird has grown up disavowing his mother and her poems; he doesn’t know her work or what happened to her, and he knows he shouldn’t wonder. But when he receives a mysterious letter containing only a cryptic drawing, he is pulled into a quest to find her. His journey will take him back to the many folktales she poured into his head as a child, through the ranks of an underground network of librarians, into the lives of the children who have been taken, and finally to New York City, where a new act of defiance may be the beginning of much-needed change.
 
Our Missing Hearts is an old story made new, of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s a story about the power—and limitations—of art to create change, the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and how any of us can survive a broken world with our hearts intact.

#1 BESTSELLING TRACK Little Fires Everywhere was an instant New York Times bestseller and spent 79 weeks on the list, 16 of them at #1. Everything I Never Told You is a backlist mainstay as well. As of October 2021, we’ve shipped over five million copies across all formats.



HOLLYWOOD SENSATION Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington’s Emmy-nominated LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE Hulu Series won hearts—and readers!—in March 2020 and beyond. Now, Celeste is the executive producer on a mini-series adaptation of EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU.  



TRUTH TO POWER Celeste is a a powerful voice on social media and elsewhere for the need to feature diverse voices in literature, and her work has been featured on platforms all across the media landscape. This novel put those themes at its center. 



NEW AMBITIONS If EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU was the story of a family, and LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE was the story of a town, OUR MISSING HEARTS is the story of a nation—and it’s one that we desperately need right now. 



CROSS PROMOTION: Simultaneous publication with the Penguin Press hardcover. Also available as a retail CD and audio download from Penguin Audio.
