Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Kasia is a 15-year-old Polish girl who has chronic fatigue syndrome, otherwise known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), after a case of tonsillitis earlier in the year. Stuck in her room day after day, Kasia gazes out her window for glimpses of the outside world. However, when she sees what appears to be a kidnapping, she quickly calls the police and notices that she wasn't the only one to witness a girl fleeing from the window in the house across the street. Only, there isn't a young girl who lives across the street. There's just a young couple and their baby. Or is there? Joelson's writing is clear and easy to follow. While Kasia tries to remain optimistic about her health and strives to get better, she also knows her limits and realizes when she's pushed herself too hard. Following Kasia through her experiences with ME allows for a unique perspective on what it's like to deal with chronic illness. Joelson takes the time to go in depth on not only the symptoms of the illness but also how Kasia feels when these symptoms start to show. As the story develops, it is revealed that there are elements of human trafficking mixed in with the plot. The book is successful in highlighting serious themes, such as invisible illnesses and human trafficking, in a realistic manner. VERDICT A great, fast-paced thriller for younger teens, this novel explores important real-world issues.—Zoe Leonarczyk, Florida State Univ., Tallahassee

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Read!
By Yolanda S. Bean on January 6, 2021
This is my first experience with this author - and considering the fact that I bought another one of her books before even finishing this one, I know it won't be my last! This YA thriller certainly hooks the reader in right away when he main character witnesses an abduction from her bedroom window. Kasia has become quite ill in the aftermath of tonsillitis - she hasn't been able to return to school and on many days, can't even leave her bed, let alone her bedroom.

Set in England, Kasia's family is from Poland - and I think that this diversity will resonate with readers. The storyline keeps the pages turning quickly and the added stress of Kasia's illness makes this fascinating for more than just the plot. The characters all seem very realistic. And though it is firmly in the YA genre, it deals with some adult (and dark!) topics while remaining appropriate for the genre. Some sections - like those about crushes and school - may not appeal as much to adult readers, but I think that this is a good crossover book. I certainly enjoyed it - and gifted it as well to a reluctant teen reader who is enjoying it so far!

I also really appreciated the author's own note about her own experience with illness. This really adds to the book's realism. Plus the family dynamics all have an authentic flair to them. I really enjoyed this one and am definitely looking forward to reading more from Joelson in the future!
