Susan Perabo’s latest novel, The Fall of Lisa Bellow, was released in 2017 from Simon and Schuster. This dark thriller begins when a man abducts the most popular girl in the 8th grade from a sandwich shop, leaving her nemesis, Meredith Oliver. The rest of the book unfolds the psychological impact of this experience on Meredith and her family. Publisher’s Weekly calls it a “sharp and suspenseful novel…Survivor’s guilt takes on a unique form here.” Booklist calls it “Gripping…Perabo captures both the unease and bravado of adolescence.” The Fall of Lisa Bellow was selected by for the Best Books to Read in 2017 and by as Best Books of March. You can read it here at the Waidner-Spahr.
