Publisher's Summary

A small town is swept up in a manhunt for a fugitive from foreign soil and a teenage girl struggling to make the right choices with little information and less time.

In the heat of a stifling summer in her 16th year, Livy Marko spends her days in the Rust Belt town of Lomath, Pennsylvania, babysitting, hanging out with her best friend, Nelson, and waiting for a bigger life to begin. These simple routines are disrupted when the electricity is cut off and the bridges are closed by a horde of police and FBI agents. On the run from an extradition order, a fugitive from the Republic of Georgia has taken refuge in nearby hills, and no one is able to leave or enter Lomath until he is found. 

As the police fail to find the wanted man and hours stretch into days, the town of Lomath begins to buckle under the strain. Like Russian dolls, each hostage seems to be harboring a captive of their own. Even Livy's parents may have something to conceal, and Livy must learn that the source of danger is not always what it appears.

Rosalie Knecht's wise and suspenseful debut evokes the classics while conjuring the contemporary paranoia of the post-terrorist age. Relief Map doesn't loosen its grip until the consequences of this catastrophic summer - and the ways in which a quiet girl's fate can be rerouted and forever changed - are made fully apparent.

This is an excellent book<br />

People make mistakes...both for good and evil. The multiple plot lines thread together seamlessly and the interactions between the characters, across age, language and cultural divisions are amazing. There is great hope for humanity in the kids but exactly the opposite in the mob mentality of some of the parents. This story is definitely worth a read. Good for the soul.
