Long Island Reads Picks Picoult’s ‘Leaving Time’

Jodi Picoult's Leaving TimeAlthough Leaving Time by Long Island author Jodi Picoult was published more than two years ago, it’s getting a fresh new look from hundreds of readers on Long Island who annually participate in the island-wide campaign, Long Island Reads.

After several years of scouring the missing persons reports and online news articles, 13-year-old Jenna Metcalf enlists the service from a once-famous psychic and a retired detective who has tried to separate himself from his past line of work to uncover the truth about her mother, Alice, who vanished 10 years earlier. Jenna has also tried to lift evidence from the words of Alice’s scientific journals about the studies of grief among elephants, but now needs to reach further in order to get answers to a decade of questions.

Leaving Time is a blend of contemporary fiction and mystery, and will likely satisfy women’s lit and young adult readers, especially Picoult fans.

Jodi Picoult's Leaving TimePicoult, of Nesconset, has authored nearly two dozen novels, including her nine #1 New York Times bestsellers like The Storyteller and My Sister’s Keeper.

Leaving Time is this year’s pick for the 2016 Long Island Reads program. Picoult will be at SAC Auditorium at Stony Brook University on Sunday, April 10, at 2 p.m., part of the Long Island Reads featured author visit.

There are more than 200 print copies circulating through Nassau County libraries, in addition to e-books, CD books and Playaway (contained MP3) formats. Leaving Time is available for purchase at local bookstores and online for approximately $16. Visit www.longislandreads.wordpress.com for more about this year’s pick and to get updates
