Things We Have in Common
by Tasha Kavanagh
Yasmin, a loner and an outsider, is obsessed with classmate Alice and with food. The fifteen year old watches and observes Alice – imagining scenarios where they are each other’s BFF or more. With food, she is constantly sneaking and eating things her doctor, mom, and stepfather don’t approve of or have outlawed. (yes, she gains weight week after week at her weigh in)
Now Yasmin thinks a man is watching Alice and is going to kidnap her. She plans on being the one to rescue Alice. She begins to investigate the man and finds some connections with him. So when Alice does go missing, Yasmin has to make some choices.
Definitely YA. I was going to put this in my classroom with fourth through sixth graders, but this is more for high school.
I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway.
