From Lois Metzger, the acclaimed author of A Trick of the Light, comes a work of speculative fiction set in the near future about a teen girl who gains a new perspective on her life. Perfect for readers who enjoyed Adam Silvera’s More Happy than Not.

Rose has changed. She still lives in the same neighborhood and goes to the same high school with the same group of kids, but when she woke up today, something was a little different. Her clothes and her hair don’t suit her anymore. The dogs who live upstairs are no longer a terror. She wants to throw a party—this from a girl who hardly ever spoke to her classmates. There’s no more sadness in her life; she’s bursting with happiness.

But something still feels wrong to Rose. Because until very recently, she was an entirely different person—a person who’s still there inside her, just beneath the thinnest layer of skin.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 08, 2016 – One morning in 2029, Rose wakes up feeling different. Instead of carrying the weight of sadness spurred by tragedies in her life, she is happy. Instead of avoiding people, she wants to talk and actually acts friendly toward her stepmother and classmates she has ignored in the past. Rose doesn't know why her mood has transformed, but it seems to involve a cloud of red light and a vague memory of a short-haired girl. In this psychological drama, Metzger (A Trick of the Light) creates a world only slightly altered by time to express what happens when one vulnerable teen's desire to be someone else comes true. The troubles Rose faces, as she tries to comprehend what has happened to her and whether it matters if her newfound happiness is real, relate to ethical questions about scientific advancements and psychological treatments. Whether or not readers agree with the decisions Rose makes, they may be inspired to examine how their own emotions affect their perception of the world. Ages 14 up.

Customer Reviews

Amazing feeling.

I have to say that when I read the first two pages, I didn't know what to think. Two chapters later I could see it, though. Speaking from experience, I could never properly describe these kinds of feelings. But this book truly captures so many things that people need to be told about. A lovely story, a wonderful character, and feelings portrayed as though they are one's own.
