Review:

Bailey Flanigan leaves Bloomington, IN, to audition for a Broadway musical. She's hesitant to leave home and those she loves, but she's determined to take this amazing opportunity. While she waits for a callback, she is approached by a bevy of suitors, including Brandon Paul, her former movie costar, and NFL newcomer Matt Keagan. Unfortunately for them, Bailey still loves ex-boyfriend Cody Coleman who has disappeared from her life to protect her from his mother's drug-related crimes. VERDICT As with Kingsbury's other novels (Unlocked), her latest is emotionally charged and features well-drawn characters struggling with their faith. The author is a perpetual CF favorite. Characters from her Baxter series appear in this series launch, and fans will be clamoring for it. Readers of Janette Oke may also enjoy. -- Library Journal

After another audition,she waits anxiously to hear if she's made it. Bailey's parents brace themselves for the inevitable day when she leaves the family nest. Meanwhile, Cody, Bailey's once boyfriend, has disappeared without a word, leaving a hole in her heart...and in her family's. Why hasn't he contacted them? Ashley and Landon are friends of the Flanigans, and Ashley worries about Landon's cough. As a firefighter, he volunteered at Ground Zero, and Ashley wonders if he has suffered side effects. Their son, Cole, will soon be aging out of the Little League and is growing up. Leaving is about families and relationships and the different kinds of 'leaving' that occur in life. Well-drawn characters and hometown stories make this another Kingsbury hit. -- CBA Retailers & Resources
