Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "There is a place in Minnesota with hundreds of miles of glacial lakes and untouched forests called the Boundary Waters. Ten years ago a man and his son trekked into this wilderness and never returned. Search teams found their campsite ravaged by what looked like a bear. They were presumed dead until a decade later ... the son appeared. Discovered while ransacking an outfitter store, he was violent and uncommunicative and sent to a psychiatric facility. Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist, is charged with making a connection with their high-profile patient. No matter how she tries, however, he refuses to answer questions about his father or the last ten years of his life But Maya, who was abandoned by her own mother, has secrets, too. And as she's drawn closer to this enigmatic boy who is no longer a boy, she'll risk everything to reunite him with his father who has disappeared from the known world"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Once a patient in Congdon Psychiatric Facility's locked criminal ward, Maya is now the hospital's most popular speech therapist, excited to tackle what promises to be her most challenging case. When he was a child, Lucas Blackthorn, along with his father, vanished into Minnesota's Boundary Waters wilderness; then Lucas resurfaced after breaking into a local outfitter's shop and assaulting the owners. Dr. Mehta, Maya's mentor and Congdon's administrator, hopes Maya can help Lucas, who appears to be a nonverbal adult, communicate his story and reveal his father's whereabouts. Lucas forms an immediate attachment to Maya, and she is shocked to discover that he will speak, but only to her. As Lucas becomes desperate to return to his father, Maya risks everything to help him escape. But every step they take toward the Boundaries draws Maya back to the horrific crime in her past. This redemption story is a departure from the chilling Gone Girl–like tale of manipulation Mejia wove in Everything You Want Me to Be (2017), instead exploring familial love and offering an honest, compassionate take on mental-health issues. Here the author uses Lake Superior's violent storms and the Boundary Waters' forbidding wilderness to intensify the story's emotional impact and heighten its exploration into the unpredictability of half-buried secrets.
