Gr 7 Up—After Kit's father dies, she finds herself receding and unable to keep up with the pressures of social life. Unable to deal with the mundane daily gossip and social climbing, she decides to sit with David, an outcast, someone she knows will not pester her. Slowly, over the course of a few weeks, the two find they have more in common than they realized. They begin to trust each other with secrets that they can't tell anyone else, and Kit enlists David to help her figure out the exact reason her father died. Little do they know how much it will complicate things. The text is wonderfully narrated by Kirby Heyborne and Abigail Revasch. Heyborne's flat monotone voice perfectly fits the complicated character of David, and Revasch's narration is young and refreshing.
VERDICT Compelling, uplifting, and utterly engaging. For fans of Rainbow Rowell and Jennifer Niven.
