The Fates Will Find Their Way: A Novel by Hannah Pittard

The Fates Will Find Their Way by Hannah Pittard is mostly about the after effects that happen to a small community after a sixteen year old girl, Nora, vanishes. The most remarkable thing about this short novel is how dissimilar it is then any other that you are likely to pick up. More than half the novel is comprised of invented circumstances about what could have happened to Nora made up by her male classmates. Even though certain basics of these made up accounts come to realization, most of it is narrative conjecture. The reader is never given a definitive answer about what happened to this girl. As it stands, the readers will either enjoy sleuthing through the possibilities or become frustrated with the lack of a classic ending.
