Sometimes when an author hasn't published a YA book in a while, they are forgotten. Cynthia Voight should not be one of them. Izzy, Willy-Nilly is just one of her books that still relates to today's problems. Do you really know who your friends are? Will they be there when the chips are down or will they walk away? Izzy had it all, great family, popular friends, even on the cheer team. But all it takes to upset her life is trusting the wrong person. Izzy has to put her life back together again and she really needs support. It comes from someone who she thought she didn't even know, but sometimes it takes someone who knows how to be a real friend when you need one. Look around your school and find the people who are overlooked by the in crowd. You may find true friends there. Even with her new friends, can Izzy stand up to the person who took her old life away?

Eat, breaths, and thinks all the time about getting kids to read more books. This was started for my junior high students to have a place to find suggestions for books when I was not at their school. But usage comes from all over the world. I must be doing something right.
