Pokrass, Meg: The Loss Detector BOOK
Meg Pokrass: The Loss Detector (Book)
Bamboo Dart Press (a division of Shrimper Records and Pelekinesis Books)
Street date: October 23rd
Set in coastal California, The Loss Detector is a funny/sad portrait of teenage blues and of a small, transplanted family of non-conformists. The flawed but lovable characters in Pokrass' novella remind us of how the world's most beautiful places are not always the easiest in which to thrive. Moments of giddy, perceived freedom set against resignation dot the narrative in such a way that will leave you changed.
