Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother’s job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn’t trust: the new guy at school–a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn’t figure it all out soon–she’ll be next.
Nearly Boswell is finding her way into the world today! And it’s so freaking exciting!
… about all the wonderful things people are saying about NEARLY GONE.
The Horn Book Magazine review says, “The plot moves at a breakneck pace…”
And describes Nearly and Reece as a “… first-rate romance…”
They say, “STEM enthusiasts can rejoice: the killers riddles-including the puzzle of what the victims’ numbers mean-involve algebra, geometry, chemistry, physics, even astronomy.”
And, “Cosimano has established herself as a thriller writer to watch.”
So yeah, you could say I’m pretty thrilled for NEARLY GONE’s official release! Special thanks to all the OneFour KidLit and Lucky 13 authors for making my debut year fun and memorable.
