The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2014 Debut of the Month A mesmerizing psychological thriller with the most compelling twist. Inspired by the true story of French conman Frédéric Bourdin, who was also the focus of the award-winning documentary The Imposter, it is the story of what happens when hope comes back to haunt you. When your desperation is used against you. When you search for the truth – but are too scared to accept the reality staring you in the face... Perfect for fans of Sophie McKenzie.

Synopsis

Now You See Me by Emma Haughton

Three years ago, thirteen-year-old Danny Geller vanished without trace.
His family and friends are still hanging on to every last shred of hope. Not knowing if he's alive or dead...until suddenly, impossibly, Danny is found. But instead of closure, the discovery brings a wave of secrets and suspicion. Is Hannah willing to expose the painful truth? Or is it better to live in the dark?
This is the story of what happens when hope comes back to haunt you. When your desperation is used against you. When you search for the truth – but are too scared to accept the reality staring you in the face...

Emma comments: “I was very interested in the theme of deception – what motivates someone to deceive. Also how easily we can be deceived, by people willing to play on our trust and by our own need to believe something is true. I guess I was also very interested in how the truth relates to our happiness – are we sometimes better off being in the dark or is it always better to know what’s really going on?"
