"There was a time I would have called Lisa Ko's novel beautifully written, ambitious, and moving, and all of that is true, but it's more than that now: if you want to understand a forgotten and essential part of the world we live in, The Leavers is required reading." --Ann Patchett, author of Commonwealth
"This beautiful, painful novel of immigration is a must-read. One morning, Deming Guo's mother, Polly - an undocumented immigrant, left for her job at a nail salon and never returned. Told in alternating viewpoints, this novel explores both Deming and Polly's lives both before and after her disappearance. Deeply moving and beautifully written, this exploration of the space one woman leaves behind is essential reading." — Northshire Bookstore Event Manager Rachel Person
