Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Teens Zac and Mia meet in a Perth, Australia, cancer ward. Zac just had a bone marrow transplant, and the tumor in Mia's ankle will soon lead to an amputation. After eavesdropping through walls and later communicating by tapping and using Facebook, they form a bond. Though Zac knows all the grim statistics on recovery, he's a helpful patient. Mia, however, is noncompliant and angry. He's athletic, living on a distant farm with a supportive family. For city girl Mia, the only child of a single mom, it's all about good looks and popularity. Zac and Mia are separated after their hospital stays, and when she runs away from home, it's pure coincidence that she ends up in his small town and they're reconnected. They offer each other support as they deal with the harsh realities of illness and classic adolescent angst. Narrators Nicholas Mondelli and Kristin Condon convincingly express the complex, often insecure teenage state of mind related in first person. VERDICT This insightful exploration of life-threatening illness is a valuable addition to libraries serving middle and high school students.—Barbara Wysocki, Cora J. Belden Library, Rocky Hill, CT

From Booklist

After a recurrence of his leukemia, Zac is recuperating from a bone-marrow transplant when the room next door becomes occupied by an angry girl with osteosarcoma. The teens begin to correspond on Facebook, but then Mia disappears from Zac’s life only to resurface months later with bad news: her leg has since been amputated below the knee. Full of rage, she convinces Zac to take her on a trip before an infection sends her back to the hospital. The two finally reunite and provide each other with needed support. The teens are in stark contrast to each other, though not always in surprising ways. Despite this, their situations are engaging, and their yearning to be treated like normal teens is well crafted. Betts’ experience working in a children’s hospital is revealed in her details—for example, the waxy taste of chocolate that lingers after chemotherapy. This Australian import, published a year after John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars (2012), will draw comparisons to that publishing juggernaut and should find in that horde a ready audience. Grades 8-11. --Lynn Rutan
