內容簡介

  強烈地渴望著不同人生的辛蒂,意外地取代了一位失蹤少女的身份。
  這輕易就會被戳破的謊言,將導致怎麼樣的結局?


  14歲的辛蒂(Cindy)與她兩位哥哥,被親生母親拋棄在賓州荒涼的鄉村小鎮裡。三人彼此相依為命,然而艱困的狀況,讓辛蒂越來越難以忍受眼前的環境。

  鄰居女孩茱迪(Jude),擁有辛蒂所嚮往的一切條件,溫暖的家庭、良好的教育、受到眾人的喜愛,卻在某個夏天突然失蹤。這消息不僅撼動了全鎮居民,也讓辛蒂的人生產生了巨大的轉變……。

  某一晚,茱迪的母親恍惚之間,將辛蒂錯認為自己女兒,辛蒂因此得以逃離她原本的生活,接收茱迪的身份,享受從未經驗過的母愛和資源。失去女兒的母親尋求慰藉,生活在貧困環境的女孩獲得幸福,兩人互取所需,看似圓滿,然而建立在謊言之上的假象,是否能繼續維持下去?選擇「扮演茱迪」的這個決定,會為辛蒂帶來什麼樣的結果?

  美國各大書評網站皆認為本書作為出道作品,Smith的表現令人驚豔。全書讀來撼動人心,久久令人難以忘懷。(文/博客來編譯)

  One of Los Angeles Times "Most Anticipated Books of the Summer"

  "When one girl goes missing, another slides into her place in Smith's hauntingly gorgeous debut novel... Spare and sensual and surprisingly funny... Smith's characters are as rich as her prose."--Kirkus, STARRED review

  Consumed by the longing for a different life, a teenager flees her family and carefully slips into another -- replacing a girl whose own sudden disappearance still haunts the town.

  Fourteen-year-old Cindy and her two older brothers live in rural Pennsylvania, in a house with occasional electricity, two fierce dogs, one book, and a mother who comes and goes for months at a time. Deprived of adult supervision, the siblings rely on one another for nourishment of all kinds. As Cindy's brothers take on new responsibilities for her care, the shadow of danger looms larger and the status quo no longer seems tolerable.

  So when a glamorous teen from a more affluent, cultured home goes missing, Cindy escapes her own family's poverty and slips into the missing teen's life. As Jude Vanderjohn, Cindy is suddenly surrounded by books and art, by new foods and traditions, and most important, by a startling sense of possibility. In her borrowed life she also finds herself accepting the confused love of a mother who is constitutionally incapable of grasping what has happened to her real daughter. As Cindy experiences overwhelming maternal love for the first time, she must reckon with her own deceits and, in the process, learn what it means to be a daughter, a sister, and a neighbor.

  Marilou Is Everywhere is a powerful, propulsive portrait of an overlooked girl who finds for the first time that her choices matter.
