Why: I read this for the first time a few years ago when I stumbled upon it at one of the libraries I used to live near, and I absolutely loved it. Sad thing was I couldn't remember for the longest time the title or who the author was, but when I started re-reading a few other books by Joan Lowery Nixon I decided to check out what all she had written and came across this one which I had been looking for for ages.
As you can probably tell it was just one of those books that stuck with me because it was just so good (as is all her books) and I would love to own a copy.
Seventeen-year-old Dina is fighting cancer and is angry at the whole world. But when Julie, a nine-year-old survivor of a car accident, becomes Dina's roommate at the hospital, there's no time for Dina to keep on being angry. Because Julie is frightened. Desperately frightened. She's sure that someone caused the accident she was in--someone who will return to kill her. Now she's insisting on being with Dina all the time. But by befriending Julie, is Dina making herself the target of a dangerous killer?
