International bestselling author Gayle Forman's trademark humor and insight abound in this masterful adult debut, showing us that sometimes you have to leave home in order to find it again.

For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, for every woman who has ever dreamed of boarding a train to a place where no one needs constant attention--meet Maribeth Klein. A harried working mother who's so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn't even realize she's had a heart attack.

Afterward, surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable: She packs a bag and leaves. But, as is so often the case, once we get to where we're going, we see our lives from a different perspective. Far from the demands of family and career and with the help of liberating new friendships, Maribeth is finally able to own up to secrets she has been keeping from those she loves and from herself.

With big-hearted characters who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing our fears. Gayle Forman, a dazzling observer of human nature, has written an irresistible novel that confronts the ambivalence of modern motherhood head-on. (Goodreads).

A new book by Gayle Forman!!
Is anyone else as excited as I am about this book??
I've really enjoyed all the books I've read of hers so far,
and I'm looking forward to reading this adult novel as well.
It comes out in September, so be sure to add it to your TBR!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier for #WoW!

  2. I am so excited for this book. I love Gayle Forman! Great pick!

  3. This sounds like a book a lot of women could relate to! Great pick! Adding to my TBR!

  4. I haven't read any of Gayle Forman's books but this one sounds just amazing. I definitely have to put it on my radar now.

  5. I actually haven't read any of Gayle Forman's books yet (ek I know!), but this one does sound really really good! I'll have to add it to my ever-growing TBR haha. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I actually haven't read any of Gayle Forman's books yet (ek I know!), but this one does sound really really good! I'll have to add it to my ever-growing TBR haha. Thanks for sharing!

  7. This one is on my wishlist as well. So excited that we only have a few more weeks to wait!

  8. I've only read If I Stay and its sequel. I need to try another Gayle Forman book. Great pick! Thanks for stopping by my WOW earlier!

  9. I haven't read any of her books yet, but I like the sound of this one. Call it weird, but I like that the MC has a heart attack and that prompts her to leave everything. I've been reading how younger women are having heart attacks more, so odd as it seems, maybe this will bring a little awareness.

    TL;DR: I hope you enjoy! WoW.

  10. Oh wow I need to catch up on some Gayle Forman books! All I've read is If I Stay duology but I know the other books she has have some good reviews so adding this new one to the TBR only makes sense :)
