Missing You is a wonderfully crafted story blending the very real issue of caring for a high needs child with a suspenseful mystery. I thought the switching POV worked well and kept the reader fully engaged with all threads of the story. The flashbacks woven into the narrative were also an important tool in giving the reader a true understanding of Ryan and Aisha's back story and how they have come to such an impasse in their relationship.
I thought the voice of Patrick was especially authentic, hitting the exact right note of an Australian man of that age. I enjoyed the way his character developed as he and Eli found common ground in their tumultuous understanding of one another. The other thing I found to be very authentic was the portrayal of a child on the autism spectrum - the daily struggles and the sheer exhaustion it entails. But perhaps the most beautiful thing was showing the depth of parental love even when your child is not "normal".
All in all Missing You is a powerful and compelling story that enveloped me in much the same way as Kylie's first book Losing Kate. It is an emotional and at time heartbreaking journey that kept me turning the pages right until the conclusion.
