Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Niku is a Romanian immigrant who is constantly bullied by his classmates. His parents temporarily came to England so they could make enough money for Niku to find a suitable wife before returning to Romania. Jess is rebellious at school, and at home, she is forced to witness—and often videotape—her mother's physical and verbal abuse by her mother's boyfriend. Following their separate arrests for shoplifting, the two teens form an unexpected bond during their mandated community service, with each trying to protect the other. Told in verse through alternating viewpoints, this is a powerful novel about how friendship and love are sometimes not enough to ensure a happy-ever-after ending. Each character has a distinct voice and way of looking at the world. Niku's chapters reflect his unfamiliarity with the English language, and through his observations, readers see him struggle to express himself clearly, especially to the other students and adults who are already judging him. Jess's verses have a sharper edge to them and are very matter-of-fact, particularly when describing her interactions with her mother's boyfriend. The conclusion, which doesn't wrap up definitively, feels authentic and may lead readers to think about the characters' futures. VERDICT A fast-paced and memorable story that will resonate with teens. A strong choice for most YA shelves.—Marissa Lieberman, East Orange Public Library, NJ
