Cover Reveal: The Missing Piece of Charlie O'Reilly by Rebecca Ansari

I'm incredibly excited to share the cover reveal for Rebecca Ansari's debut novel, a story for middle grade readers about a boy named Charlie, the little brother only he remembers, and his friend, Ana, who trust Charlie over memory. If you're at all like me, you'll be captivated by the description of The Missing Piece of Charlie O'Reilly and intrigued by the cover! Don't forget to enter to win a signed advanced reader copy, too.

Rebecca Ansari lives in a very loud house in Minneapolis with her husband, their four boys, and a somewhat insane golden retriever. After twelve years as an ER doctor, she shelved her scrubs to write magical and mysterious worlds for middle grade readers. She is drawn to any story that evokes, “Please, mom! Just one more chapter!” and she strives to craft the same. She was the winner of the Minnesota SCBWI Mentorship for 2015. When she isn’t writing, you can find her joyously mountain biking, begrudgingly running, or escaping “up north” with family, friends and a stack of good books. Her novel, The Missing Piece of Charlie O'Reilly is due out from Walden Pond Press/HarperCollins in March 2019.

About the Book

Charlie O’Reilly is an only child. Which is why it makes everyone uncomfortable when he talks about his brother.

 Liam. His little brother, who, up until a year ago, slept in the bunk above Charlie, took pride in being as annoying as possible, and was the only person who could make Charlie laugh until it hurt. Then came the morning when Liam disappeared forever. No one even remembers him—not Charlie’s mother, who has been battling depression; and not Charlie’s father, who is often gone on business trips. The only person who believes Charlie is his best friend, Ana; even if she has no memory of Liam, she is as determined as Charlie is to solve the mystery of his missing brother.

 The search seems hopeless . . . until Charlie finds a mysterious note, unmistakably written in Liam’s handwriting. And if he and Ana are going to figure out what happened to Liam, they have no choice but to follow its instructions—even if doing so could mean that they, too, might disappear, unremembered, forever.

 Rebecca K. S. Ansari’s debut is a stunning contemporary fantasy about love, loss, and the power to forgive that we all have inside us—even if we forget that it’s there.


 And now for the official cover reveal of The Missing Piece of Charlie O'Reilly!
