Gayle Forman Reveals Cities and Dates for Leave Me Tour 

Gayle Forman will be touring all over the U.S. to promote her new book, Leave Me, her debut adult novel.

FormanNo, Leave Me isn’t a Young Adult book, but it is a book written by New York Times bestselling author Gayle Forman, who’s written several popular Young Adult novels, including If I Stay.  So, although Leave Me is an adult novel, as fans of her books, we’d like to let you know that she’ll be hitting the road soon for her Leave Me tour.

Plus, as we know, many of the YA book readers are from all ages, we’d like to encourage expanding your scope to not just YA books, but books that are engaging regardless of the genre.  Leave Me looks to be one of those books.

“Even after a heart attack and bypass surgery, Maribeth Klein is still the default caretaker of her family. So when she runs away, it seems like this inequity, this burden, is the reason. But the further away she gets from home, the more the reader, and eventually Maribeth, begins to understand that while she may carry a disproportionate amount of the weight at home, and while her health was in jeopardy, it was something else that drove her away.

“Maribeth was ‘left’ by her birth mother when she was a baby. She was left again by her now-husband Jason when they graduated from college (they got back together a decade later). But it’s only when she’s nearly left again, this time by her own heart, her own life, that all of those unacknowledged abandonment fears, come burbling to the surface. This is why she runs away.

“Only by running away and forming relationships in Pittsburgh, with her neighbors, Janice, and Dr. Grant, her unconventional cardiologist, and searching for her birth mother, is she able to come to terms with what she’s been looking for all along.”
