"Leaving Wishville by Mel Torrefranca exhibits intensity unique in contemporary young adult fiction." -Readers' Favorite

Ten years ago, Scott Marino disappeared from town without a trace.

His son Benji, now fourteen, is the only person daring enough to approach the border. Although his best friends are eager to help him move on, he can't shake the feeling that his father is still out there.

Everyone in town says it's impossible. They believe Scott's disappearance proves the world outside of Wishville is unsurvivable, but he questions their reasoning.

When his friend's sickly little sister claims to know what others don't, Benji's life is thrown into chaos. With time against him, and his curiosity stronger than ever, he knows what he must do. Leaving Wishville might be his only chance for freedom - but it may also cost him his life.

A colorful and chilling debut, Leaving Wishville dives into a sea of forbidden curiosity, unavoidable grief, and the dangers of discovering the truth.

"Fans of The Giver will be immediately enraptured by the magical and mysterious world of Wishville." -Abbie Emmons, bestselling author of 100 Days of Sunlight
