At sixteen, Lamb walked out on her life. It wasn’t much to walk away from: Her parents were dead and she had no brothers or sisters—no one in the world who cared if she lived or died. Now she cleans houses and lives in the dusty cellar of an elderly widowed man, balancing on her high wire of loneliness. If she doesn’t let anyone in, she can’t fall.
Then Doggo shows up. A fugitive on the run for committing a violent crime, he’s accompanied by Gordon and Norma, two mutts who love him unconditionally. Doggo needs Lamb’s help to stay off the radar. He also needs her in other ways—even after he learns the terrible secret she’s been lugging around like a second skin. In Lamb, Doggo sees his chance for salvation. And in Doggo, Lamb just might find the acceptance and adoration she’s been searching for.
Part love story, part mystery, Now You See Me is a heartbreaking and uplifting novel about loneliness, trust, the fictions we tell ourselves to survive, and the primal need to connect with another human being.
