About the Book

A #1 New York Times bestseller, Mitchard's suspenseful and moving novel is now available in trade paperbackFew first novels receive the kind of attention and acclaim showered on this powerful story--a nationwide bestseller, a critical success, and the first title chosen for Oprah's Book Club. Both highly suspenseful and deeply moving, The Deep End of the Ocean imagines every mother's worst nightmare--the disappearance of a child--as it explores a family's struggle to endure, even against extraordinary odds. Filled with compassion, humor, and brilliant observations about the texture of real life, here is a story of rare power, one that will touch readers' hearts and make them celebrate the emotions that make us all one.

First Sentence

"I only like the baby," Beth told her husband, as they stacked plastic bags and diaper bags, and duffel bags and camera bags, and Beth's big old Bacfold reflector-all in a pile in the hall.
