City High School

Isabel has one rule: no dating. All the women in her family are heartbreakers, and she’s destined to become one, too, if she’s not careful. But when she goes to the hospital for her RA infusion, she meets a gorgeous, foul-mouthed boy who has her rethinking the no-dating rule and ready to risk everything.

Aleksander is chronically ill, too, and there’s a softer side underneath all his jokes. Isabel finds herself unraveling the secrets of a real person, rather than crowdsourcing her decisions through her online column Sick Girl Wants to Know. They fall for each other hard and fast, but Isabel has known all along they were headed for disaster. When a devastating family secret threatens their love, can she find the strength to claim a brave, new life with Aleksander, or will she retreat to the safety she’s always depended on and break his heart?

School Library Journal

Isabel, aka “Sick Girl” according to her weekly column in the school’s newspaper, has one self-imposed rule—absolutely no dating. Life is just easier that way for her and everyone else. Isabel has rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic, invisible illness that she’s been trying to manage for the past few years. Her friends often forget and have difficulty understanding her experiences because she struggles with opening up and depending on others, and her doctors don’t always take her complaints seriously. Enter Sasha, who Isabel meets in the infusion room at the hospital. Sasha has Gaucher Disease—a genetic illness that affects his spleen and liver—and he understands her better than anyone else in her life. He does everything he can to woo her, convince her to break her own rule, and take a chance even if she doesn’t know the outcome. Moskowitz’s newest novel is a refreshing and poignant look at chronic illnesses that aren’t often represented in young adult literature. The story offers a unique take on finding your person and contains an array of representation. Recommend to fans of Rachael Lippincott’s Five Feet Apart and Nicola Yoon’s Everything, Everything. Readers may appreciate a book about illness that doesn’t end with character death.
