About the Author
Emma Young is an award-winning science/medicine journalist and author. Her work has been carried by CNN, the Week, and various newspapers and websites. Her books include the critically acclaimed middle-grade Storm series, as well as adult popular-science nonfiction. She lives in the United Kingdom with her husband and two children.
"First-person narration increases the tension, and readers experience everything simultaneously with Rosa: from disgust at having co-opted someone else’s life, to doubt about whether her first love and sexual experience is about her or the dead girl whose body she wears...sympathy for Rosa and the bizarre situation she finds herself in will keep readers turning pages."
"Like Pearson’s The Adoration of Jenna Fox (BCCB 4/08), the book prompts readers to wonder what makes human beings who they are—whether it is mind, body, or both—and to contemplate the impacts of innovative medical research and procedures."
" . . . the author does a nice job in developing the character and showing the emotional roller coaster that Rosa is on. Middle and high school girls will thoroughly enjoy this book."
"Through the voice of Rosa, the author makes this emotional journey seem real. Vivid sensory detail adds immediacy as Rosa experiences—as though for the first time—the sights, smells, and sounds that surround her. Readers . . . will find this an engrossing read."
