A Novel by Tamara Palmer
Summer break has just begun and Kit Carlin is on her way to a funeral: to bury her twin brother. Kit has to find a way to put the broken puzzle of her life back together following Tyler’s death. She navigates through grief and family trauma by finding support in unexpected places and a growing understanding of what comes after life. There are laughter and tears, summer beach time on the Jersey shore, and the complicated “rollercoaster” of young love, jealousy, and sex. The joys and pains of Kit’s fifteenth summer become part of her unique journey of recovery and self-discovery as all of her experiences leave her changed forever.
Missing Tyler is an absolute gem. This novel is a tender, heartfelt, poetic, and above all else, an honest story of death, grief, recovery, and love. An amazing book with a thundering heart. A YA masterpiece, but like the best, a beautiful book for readers of any age.
