"Missing Isaac" is the debut novel from Valerie Fraser Luesse and it is well-written and hopefully the start of many more novels to come!
The reader is transported to the 60's, a time of turmoil and change in this little Southern town. Isaac and Pete have an unlikely friendship, but this doesn't keep Pete from searching for him, this motivates him even more. Pete begins a journey that he has no idea where it is going to take him and what he is going to learn and how he is going to change all along the way.
This story paints such a vivid picture for me of how society was at this time and growing up myself in a small town, I can totally see this story playing how just how it is written as everyone knows each other, and they are tight-knit, but then there is still division and tension among factions. There is so much to this book, mystery, love, historical details, and a portrayal of everyday living. I highly recommend this be on your to read list for 2018!
