Author Event - A Void the Size of the World Book by Rachele Alpine Presented by Beck Center for the Arts
Rhylee didn’t mean to kiss her sister’s boyfriend. At least, not the first time. But it doesn’t matter, because her sister, Abby, caught them together, ran into the dark woods behind their house…and never came home. Rhylee can’t bring herself to admit what she’s done: that she is the reason her sister ran away. Now Tommy, Abby’s boyfriend, is the prime suspect in her disappearance. Slowly, Rhylee’s family is breaking—their lives center on the hope that Abby will return. Rhylee knows they need to face the truth and begin healing—but how can they, when moving on feels like a betrayal? And how do you face the guilt of wishing a person gone…when they actually disappear? Rachele Alpine is a high school English teacher by day, a wife and mother by night and a writer during any time she can find in between. She lives in Cleveland, where she writes middle grade and young adult novels. Come help celebrate the launch of Rachele’s young adult novel with an author presentation, book signing, prizes and more. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
