Daring, determination and 'The Girl You Left Behind'
At first glance, Jojo Moyes' third novel, "The Girl You Left Behind," bears a striking resemblance to a popular book for kids: "The Daring Book for Girls" by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz. Their covers are doppelgangers, with retro fonts and metallic splashes, and what's inside of each has a similar effect of mobilizing the reader to take charge of her own life.
