Praise

Praise for The Thing I’m Most Afraid Of:

“An engaging historical novel with an unusual, vividly realized setting. . . A moving resolution.” —Booklist

“In this thoughtful novel populated with well-developed characters, Levine slowly and realistically reveals Becca’s growth. . . An important story about anxiety, change, and courage.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Becca is an engaging and sympathetic narrator, and Levine (The Jigsaw Jungle) writes her experience of anxiety with nuance and sensitivity. The past is never forgotten in Vienna, and Levine threads the city’s history into this novel . . . while Sara’s recollections of the Bosnian War are heartrendingly effective.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“In this historical novel set in 1993, fears and anxieties are taking over 12-year-old Becca Greenburg’s life. . . As Becca . . . learn[s] that having and being a support for others builds inner strength . . . her anxieties do not vanish, but she learns how to live in spite of them. VERDICT: A slice of history that echoes another country’s struggle with anti-immigrant sentiment.” —School Library Journal
