Unexpected violence and mystery are the stuff of psychological thrillers, and these two authors are masters of that craft. But Alice Kuipers and Rebecca James take it far past the “who dunnit?” to explore bigger issues of terrorism, personal loss and the limits of friendship. Both teenage protagonists smack up against elements of contemporary life that are far beyond their years―from panic attacks to eating disorders and controlling personalities. In the hands of these authors, readers are deftly steered away from the darkness of these experiences and are left with a wiser understanding of trauma and the challenges of overcoming it. Suitable for grades 9 to 12. $17 / $8.50 for student groups (thebookpile)
