Here Lies Daniel Tate

Author: Cristin Terrill 

Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: June 6, 2017

Goodreads:


A young, street-savvy runaway looking for a place to call home realized he might have conned his way into the wrong family in this fast-paced and thrilling novel from award-winning author Cristin Terrill.

It seems too good to be true when Daniel Tate, missing since he was abducted from one of California’s most elite private enclaves at the age of ten, turns up on a snowy street in Vancouver six years later. At first too traumatized to speak, he is eventually able to tell the authorities who he is and is reunited with his overjoyed family. In time, they tell him, he’ll recover the memories he’s missing; all that matters is that they have him back.

It’s perfect. A miracle. Except for one thing:

That boy isn’t Daniel Tate.

But he wants to be. A young con artist who’s been taking on false identities for years, this impostor has stumbled onto the scam of a lifetime. Daniel has everything he’s ever dreamed of—wealth, privilege, the chance to make a fresh start, and most importantly, a family that loves him. Now that he’s finally found a place to belong, he doesn’t question his luck.

Until he realizes that maybe Daniel isn’t missing at all. Maybe someone knows what really happened to the boy he’s pretending to be…and if he can’t uncover the truth—he could be next the next Daniel Tate to disappear.
 


Why I'm Excited: So the whole pretending to be the missing person has been done--a lot--but this one sounds exciting. I've heard nothing but good things about this author and am looking forward to reading her work (I should probably start with her debut...which I've owned for at least two years now. Lol). Regardless, I'll be keeping my eyes open for this one. 

What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Link me up!

  1. This sounds so good! LOL, I must be reading the wrong books because I've read a ton of "missing person resurfaces after years" kind of thing, but never one where it was someone pretending to be them! :D I'm in the same boat as you, though---I've owned this author's debut probably since it came out and there it sits unread. I'll have to put both of these on my hopeful tbr for this year. ;)

  2. This does sound good! Thanks for putting it on my radar. It sounds similar to a TV show I was watching this past fall called The Family.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
