Gayle Forman is a journalist and award-winning author whose many young adult novels include I Was Here, Just One Day, and If I Stay, which was also a major motion picture. In her latest novel, Leave Me (Algonquin), a harried working mother who’s so busy taking care of her husband and twins doesn’t even realize she’s had a heart attack. Then, she does the unthinkable: she packs and leaves. Far from the demands of family and career and with the help of liberating new friendships, she is finally able to own up to secrets she has been keeping from those she loves and from herself.
