Labor Day: A Novel

Labor Day: A Novel

256 pages; William Morrow
He's an ex-con on the run who needs a place to hide. She's an agoraphobic single mother. What stands between—and, at times, beside—them is 13-year-old Henry. The fast-paced novel will leave you breathless with suspense—allowing the movie (just opening now!) to let you experience the story all over again, only slow enough this time to break your heart.
— Leigh Newman
