When Jonny went missing everything changed.
His mother's heart is full of terror and sadness instead of joy.
His father's study overflows with newspaper cuttings and profiles on missing people instead of the academic texts that were there before.
His sister, once carefree, now carries the weight of the world on her shoulders.
His bedroom at home remains untouched and ready for his return.
A place is set for him at the table on Christmas day each year.
His birthday is always celebrated; unopened gifts for him gather dust.
The hands on the clock continue to move forwards and yet Jonny hasn't returned.
Where is he?

I really enjoyed this book, although it made me cry several times!
I can't even begin to imagine how awful it must be, for family left behind, when someone just up and diappears with no warning. The story also shines a light on peoples perceptions of the homeless - rather sad!

Borrowed this book from a friend. A bit slow at first, but great read once into it. Pulls at any mothers heart strings.

Couldn't put it down - deep within the family there are other things going on - not just Johnny! An awesome read and now going back to my work colleague to pass along
