Jan Elizabeth Watson’s debut novel What Has Become of You
was launched with a stellar publicity lineup. The New York Times Book Review
called the book a “shivery thriller.” It got a starred Publishers Weekly review
, as well as reviews in the Associated Press and the Huffington Post, to name a few. Watson celebrated the publication with an appearance last Thursday (5/1) in Portland, Maine at Longfellow Books, during which the store sold out of books. She will continue to do events in New England in the coming months.
What Has Become of You
was selected as one of iBooks’ “20 Best Books of May.” And the eye-catching jacket for the book was the focus of a recent social media campaign by Dutton. Check out #sheswatching for a bit of the guerilla marketing that went on both in and out of the office.
What Has Become of You
is a twisty literary thriller with not one but two unreliable narrators and is set in a small New England town that is recovering from the shock of the murder of a young teenage girl. Told partly from the perspective of Vera Lundy, a self-deprecating substitute teacher and aspiring true crime writer and partly through the assigned journal entries of Vera’s most promising student, Jensen Willard. It is a chilling tale of misplaced ties between teacher and student and the frightening influence that the past can cast on the present.
