Kasey & Ivy by Alison Hughes

Kasey & Ivy by Alison Hughes

Through twenty-six letters to her friend Nina, twelve-year-old Kasey chronicles the often humorous observations and impressions of her unexpected, month-long stay in a geriatric ward for the treatment of a rare but treatable bone disease (“osteo-something-something-itis”). Kasey tries to make her life less dull by wearing her own nightgowns, surrounding herself with her favorite stuffies and developing an unusual exercise routine. Hospital food, insomnia and the germy communal bath are enduring sources of dread, but some new (and unexpected) friends make her life bearable.

This book is probably one of my favourite books ever! It kept me wanting to read more and more. I would read this book when it was silent reading time and I just couldn’t stop. I will say that I really wish there was a second book. But other than that probably the best book ever.

I give this book a rating of 5 because I could feel Kasey's emotions her terror, her pain and her boredom. I felt like I was watching a movie I couldn't take my eyes off - it was amazing. I loved it. It sucked me into the story and I didn't want to escape - that's why I give it a five. Thank you!
