Les premières phrases

 » Before Hannah left, she asked if I was sure I’d be okay. She had already waited an hour past when the doors were closed for winter break, until everyone but the custodians were gone. She had folded a load of laundry, written an email, searched her massive psychology textbook for an­swers to the final exam questions to see if she had gotten them right. She had run out of ways to fill time, so when I said, “Yes, I’ll be fine,” she had nothing left to do except try to believe me.

I helped her carry a bag downstairs. She gave me a hug, tight and official, and said, “We’ll be back from my aunt’s on the twenty-eighth. Take the train down and we’ll go to shows.”

I said yes, not knowing if I meant it. When I returned to our room, I found she’d snuck a sealed envelope onto my pillow.

And now I’m alone in the building, staring at my name written in Hannah’s pretty cursive, trying to not let this tiny object undo me. »

Impressions

J’ai dévoré ce livre en deux jours ! Dès les premières phrases, j’ai été transportée dans la vie de l’héroïne, Marin, une jeune fille qui se retrouve à passer les vacances de Noël seule dans son campus universitaire, à New York. Seule, à l’exception de 3 jours durant lesquels sa meilleure amie, Mabel, sera là, à ses côtés. Mais Mabel vient pour obtenir des réponses et savoir pourquoi Marin a disparu du jour au lendemain, pourquoi Marin s’est enfermée dans une telle solitude… Une histoire bouleversante, superbe, qui vous fera forcément verser quelques larmes. Un GROS coup de cœur. Et quelle jolie couverture !

Un passage parmi d’autres

 I wonder if there’s a secret current that connects people who have lost something. Not in the way that everyone loses something, but in the way that undoes your life, undoes your self, so that when you look at your face it isn’t yours any more.
