Watch Me Disappear by Jill Dawson
In Watch Me Disappear, Tina Humber is living in the the US and has a 10-year old daughter. While snorkeling, she sees the drowned, bloated face of Mandy Baker. When she and Mandy were 10, Mandy disappeared without a trace. Tina goes back to England for her brother's wedding, and images and memories from the past come back to haunt her. She's not sure what to believe, or who would believe her and not write them off as hallucinations? Even more upsetting is the role her dead father might have played in it all. Jill Dawson's novel has received positive reviews (and Orange Prize and Whitbread Award nominations) with Scotland on Sunday saying, "Dawson doesn't kowtow to any particular genre or style of writing, preferring to muddy the waters between fact and fiction, illusion and reality, the said and the unspoken. She demands an emotional, knee-jerk reaction from her reader and, to her credit, she gets it."
