by Mel Torrefranca (February 8, 2020)

Ten years after his father's disappearance, 14-year-old Benji Marino plans to escape from town. With time against him, leaving Wishville might be his only chance for freedom — but it may also cost him his life.

A colorful and chilling debut, LEAVING WISHVILLE dives into a sea of forbidden curiosity, unavoidable grief, and the dangers of discovering the truth.
