Product description

Review

Emotional, moving and thought provoking, and I loved it.
(The Sun 2016-03-04)

This isn't the first YA novel to incorporate dementia as a plot device, but it's gloriously funny, deeply emotional and a triumph.
(Sally Morris Daily Mail)

This novel, encompassing violence to women, changing attitudes to unmarried mothers, and many kinds of love, is funny, sharply observed, shocking and wonderful.
(Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

Hattie and Gloria are such fantastic central characters. What a lovely, lovely book!
(Lisa Williamson, author of The Art of Being Normal)

An absolutely gorgeous, heartfelt and incredibly enjoyable follow up to The Year of the Rat ... Clare writes about serious subjects lightly but with real feeling, and conveys family relationships so well.
(Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike)

I enjoyed the honesty of it and the way in which sadness and joy are presented as two sides of the same coin. I enjoyed the acknowledgement that love doesn't always conquer all . . . But mostly I enjoyed the growing relationship between two women, one looking back over a life and one looking towards a life yet to come. Recommended.
(The Bookbag)

A really heartfelt book which has a lot to say about family and its importance. I thoroughly recommend it.
(Kirsty, The Overflowing Library Goodreads)

Just as emotional, warm and life-affirming as Clare Furniss’ debut, The Year of the Rat . . . subtle but powerful . . . How Not to Disappear is another beautiful novel from Clare Furniss. It talks of love, family and the defining nature of memories in a way that is completely pitch-perfect.
(So Many Books, So Little Time)

From the Inside Flap

Hattie's summer isn't going as planned. Her two best friends have abandoned her: Reuben has run off to Europe to 'find himself" and Kat is in Edinburgh with her new girlfriend. Meanwhile Hattie is stuck babysitting her twin siblings and dealing with endless drama around her mum's wedding. Oh, and she's also just discovered that she's pregnant with Reuben's baby...Then Gloria, Hattie's great-aunt who no one even knew existed, comes crashing into her life. Gloria's fiercely independent, rather too fond of a gin sling and is in the early stages of dementia. Together the two of them set out on a road trip of self-discovery - Gloria to finally confront the secrets of her past before they are erased from her memory forever and Hattie to face the hard choices that will determine her future...
Non Pratt's Trouble meets Thelma and Louise with a touch of Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey, Clare Furniss' remarkable How Not To Disappear is an emotional rollercoaster of a novel that will make you laugh and break your heart. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
