"Isabel has one rule: no dating. It's easier-it's safer-it's better-for the other person. She's got issues. She's got secrets. She's got rheumatoid arthritis. But then she meets another sick kid. He's got a chronic illness Isabel's never heard of, something she can't even pronounce. He understands what it means to be sick. He understands her more than her healthy friends. He understands her more than her own father, who's a doctor. He's gorgeous, fun, and foul-mouthed. And totally into her. Isabel has one rule: no dating. It's complicated-it's dangerous-it's never felt better-to consider breaking that rule for him."

*Starred Review* Like all the women in her family, absent mother included, Isabel is cursed when it comes to men. And she's got rheumatoid arthritis. Between these things and the newspaper column she diligently writes, Isabel believes she's better off not dating. So, when she meets the adorable, dogged, and also chronically ill Sasha during a regular infusion treatment at the hospital, she's committed to staying just friends. But as they spend more time together, "just friends" makes less sense, and Isabel has to decide whether it's worth breaking her rules for Sasha. In a story about embracing your whole self and taking responsibility for your choices, Moskowitz (Salt, 2018) has produced a guaranteed love-match for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars (2012) and Five Feet Apart (2019), by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Ianconis. Swoony with defined maturity, the narrative addresses the challenges of youthful romance with respect and understanding, folding in chronic illness with honesty and much-needed nuance. Thoughtful without being heavy-handed or improbable in its teen characterization, Sick Kids In Love has a cinematic feel reminiscent of mid-00s romantic comedies, without feeling dated. As aspects of modern culture blend with timeless themes, Moskowitz's latest boasts a staying power that should secure it a place in every teen collection. Grades 8-12.
