Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Fifteen-year-old Edie is no stranger to starting over. She and her mother have been evading her abusive father for longer than she cares to remember. This time however, things are different. Edie doesn't just have to move to a new town and make new friends. She is forced to relocate to London, leaving her beloved cat behind at a moment's notice. As if adjusting to a new country weren't enough of a challenge, Edie finds herself at the center of a missing person case when her mother does not return home from her new job. With the help of unlikely ally and romantic prospect Jermaine, Edie's search for her mother takes her all over the city. It is on this journey that she realizes it's time to stop running and start living. This realistic novel is a quick read with a slightly implausible plot. If readers are able to overlook the myriad of unlikely coincidences and hasty wrap-up, they will enjoy this fast-paced sojourn through London. For fans of Maureen Johnson's 13 Little Blue Envelopes (HarperCollins, 2005).—Jennifer Furuyama, Pendleton Public Library, OR


“…the unflinching portrayal of Edie’s experience (and well-earned anger) is what makes her story so believable. The author manages to create a feeling of adventure while still respecting the pain and stress [Edie] is undergoing…this is fresh, tough writing that meets young readers where they live.” (Quill & Quire (starred review))

“This is a splendid book, full of mystery, adventure, and love.” (

“This Canadian import makes for a quick, exciting read.” (Booklist (Chicago, IL))

Since You’ve Been Gone is fast-paced and compelling … [the book] will appeal to anyone who likes realistic contemporary stories about youth facing difficult circumstances.” (Canadian Materials)
