Jael Richardson is q's books columnist. She drops by every couple weeks to fill us in on a new book to check out. Today, she joins host Tom Power to talk about A Prayer For Travellers by Ruchika Tomar. The story is about two teenagers, Cale and Penny, who live in a small town in the Nevada desert. One day, Penny goes missing and Cale decides to try and find her. It's part mystery and part coming-of-age story, but it's how the story is told that makes this book unique.
