Izzy has it all: beauty, brains, friends, poise, and popularity. But at 15 she hasn't gone out with a senior boy, until Marco asks her to the party. So, of course, she goes. There the script goes sour. He drinks too much, she needs to get home, the car strikes a tree, and Izzy's leg is amputated just below the knee. Though it feels like the end to Izzy, it really is the beginning of what becomes a new and more independent life. Mandy Siegfried matches each of Voigt's characters and their peculiar attitudes with a distinctive voice. Her subtle shadings of tone count for a lot when four adolescent girls are talking at once; but Siegfried never gets confused, and neither does the reader. This is a book all about growing wise, making tough choices, and, though no longer having it all, being able to put it all together. P.E.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
