Twelve-year-old Mila, a sensitive and perceptive girl, leaves during Easter break with her father Gil to New York to visit his friend Matthew. Shortly before their flight, they find out from Matthew’s wife that he has disappeared without a trace. And so Mila and her dad set off on a trip across the USA all the way to the Canadian border to look for him. PICTURE ME GONE is simultaneously a philosophical road movie and a touching family story. With impressive language and authenticity, Rosoff tells the story of a very special father-daughter relationship and of the fact that in the end, the way there is usually just as important as the destination. Rosoff is a second-time guest at the ilb. “Beautifully written, full of keen observation” (Susan Choi, The New York Times).
