I have this book on my wish list that I would like to buy Letting go , however when I try to click on it to order it from Amazon ,it takes me  to a whole different book. What is up with that.

Could someone click on it for me a see if  " Buy from Amazon " it shows a different book.

thanks  , I appreciate it.

Is it possible that Letting Go is an alternate title or the UK title of the book?  In the synopsis the character names are the same, I think.

I get the same as you - I get the book "Hurt". When I read the book description it appears to be the same as "Letting Go" i.e. it's about Matheo and Lola..

 

I did various searches and could not find any reference to "Letting Go" as a proper title for any book by Tabitha Suzuma - I think the proper title should be "Hurt" for the ISBN 9781849415200.

Hi Lisa. I just tried it and it went to a book called 'Hurt' by the same author. However the description for the book sounds similar and the isbn numbers for Letting Go match up to the ones for Hurt on Amazon. When I looked the author up on Goodreads she doesn't have a book called Letting Go listed under her works.

I wonder if there are any trades here for this listing. PBS may be able to change the book data/title so it shows correctly if Hurt is the actual title.

Many listings come to us before release (pre-publication), and often they have what the publishers refer to as a 'working title'.  It might be used as the actual title, or they may come up with something they think fits better or will sell better.  If other online book sites show a different title for what appears to be the same book, please send a data edit so it can be corrected...

This happens.  This book is clearly titled With This Ring? but PBS has it listed as On Bended KneeHere's another one - the real title is Small Great Things but PBS has it listed as Living Color.  Thanks to Anna's encouragement above, I submitted data edits for both books this morning.

On the book data page click the 'more options' button. The 'edit book data' choice is under there. Or you can contact PBS by clicking the 'contact us' button at the bottom of the page.
