Westborough: Author K.A. Harrington at Tatnuck Bookseller

Westborough – K.A. Harrington, author of Forget Me, will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Saturday, Aug. 9, from 4 – 6 p.m.

 

Two names. One face. A dangerous secret exposed. Morgan never minded her boyfriend Flynn’s dark and private nature. She found it mysterious and alluring. But now he’s dead, and she can’t move on. She feels much like her dying town, River’s End, with its overgrown amusement park and abandoned houses: once happy…now rotting away.

 

Hoping for some closure, Morgan uploads her only photo of Flynn to the social media site FriendShare along with a note to say good-bye, but she’s shocked when the facial recognition software suggests she tag him as Evan Murphy. She’s never heard of Evan. A quick search reveals that he lives in a nearby town and looks exactly like Flynn, only this boy is very much alive. Digging through layers of secrets, Morgan questions everything she knew about her town, her boyfriend, and even her parents’ involvement in this massive web of lies.

 

All are welcome to meet the author. Tatnuck Bookseller is located at 18 Lyman St., the Westborough Shopping Center.
