Despite being amazing on the level of connecting to characters this was a bit confusing. At the end of the book, I had no idea if Rebecca was delusional or magical. She had imaginary friends and sometimes they seemed like just that. Other times it was like she was seeing what others could not. By the end, I still had no idea. That could have been made a little more clear. Other than that it was a fairly interesting book.
Is it Lonely? Or is it Me? tells the story of Rebecca and her struggles in her new home. At high school, she is bullied relentlessly and any and all attempts to communicate with her peers are shot down in the same manner. After long bouts of loneliness, she begins to imagine friends. But her new “friend” Maya is nothing but trouble. Trapped between the new recesses in her mind and the life she desperately wants to escape, Rebecca sinks further and further into her depression.
My only issue with the book is the mention of Rebecca’s slide into delusion as “powers” because it makes it unclear if what she is seeing is real or imagined especially since the other characters in the book cannot see what she does. Other than this, Is it Lonely? Or is it Me? Is an engaging read that will definitely hook YA readers!
An authentic teen voice. Rebeca’s anxiety is believable, and Toussiant’s writing style is both simple and poetic. Full of timely subject matter while also being reminiscent of classic Lois Duncan, Is it LONELY? Or is it ME? should find plenty of fans among today’s Young Adult readers.
