Like The Lovely Bones and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Cammie McGovern’s
breakout novel is at once a hypnotic thriller and an affecting portrait of people as real as our next-door neighbors. In
Eye Contact, two children vanish in the woods behind their elementary school. Hours later, nine-year-old

Only his mother, Cara, can help decode his behavior for the police. As the suspense ratchets, Eye Contact
becomes a heart-stopping exploration of the bond between a mother and a very special child.
