SUMMARY: 

When Miranda Black’s mother abandoned her, she took everything—the sun, moon, and stars—and Miranda found shelter in her friendship with Syd, who wore her own motherlessness like a badge of honor: Our mothers abandoned us. We won’t go begging for scraps.

When Syd runs away suddenly and inexplicably in the middle of their senior year, Miranda is abandoned once again, left to untangle the questions of why Syd left, where she is—and if she’s even a friend worth saving. Her only clue is Syd’s discarded pink leopard print cell phone and a single text contained there from the mysterious HIM. Along the way, forced to step out from Syd’s enormous shadow, Miranda finds herself stumbling into first love with Nick Allison of all people and learning what it means to be truly seen, to be finally not missing in her own life.

MY REVIEW:

I'm Not Missing is a novel about a girl named Miranda whose best friend abruptly cuts off contact and skips town in the middle of their senior year of high school. It’s a story all about change and how to adapt to it.

The story was just beautifully written. Carrie Fountain is not afraid to talk about serious topics. It grips you from the start and it’s so captivating.

Miranda, the main character was completely relatable, I understood every decision she was making and where she was coming from. The family interaction was other thing that made this book stand out.

I'm Not Missing is perfect for a summer read and is going to be a favorite of contemporary fans.
