Praise

★ “[A] thoughtful, sensitively told page-turner of a novel-in-verse. . . . Joanne Rossmassler Fritz (Everywhere Blue), herself a survivor of two ruptured aneurysms, weaves in accurate medical information without weighing down the narrative. Ruptured takes on momentous subjects with delicacy and nuance.”—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

“This story is packed with beautiful emotions, conveyed by equally apt descriptions. . . A survivor of two aneurysms, Fritz captures the trauma and recovery journey of this difficult experience with accuracy and skill. A poignant story that gives children many examples of resilience amid scary life moments. . .”School Library Journal

“Engaging verse ferries vulnerable emotion as poet Fritz (Everywhere Blue) excavates hope from medical drama in this quietly powerful story about healing.”Publishers Weekly

“A compulsively readable account of a young teen’s journey toward hope.”—Kirkus Reviews
