    THE LEAVERS by Lisa Ko
    This book was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2017 and the winner of the 2016 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Fiction. Polly, an undocumented Chinese immigrant, goes to her job at a nail salon--and never comes home. No one can find any trace of her. This is the story of her son, Deming Guo, who at eleven is left without a caregiver. He is adopted by a pair of professors in upstate New York and renamed Daniel. The story is told from the point of view of Daniel as an adult and Deming as he experiences this traumatic event in his life. Copies are available at the front desk.
