"Heartfelt and emotional." --Rebecca Phillips, author of Faking Perfect

"I can't ever be the blazing star that Iris was. I'm still just a cold, dark satellite orbiting a star that went super nova."

Andria's twin sister, Iris, had adoring friends, a cool boyfriend, a wicked car, and a shelf full of soccer trophies. She had everything, in fact--including a drug problem. Six months after Iris's death, Andria is trying to keep her grades, her friends, and her family from falling apart. But stargazing and books aren't enough to ward off her guilt that she--the freak with the scary illness and all-black wardrobe--is still here when Iris isn't. And then there's Alex Hammond. The boy Andria blames for Iris's death. The boy she's unwittingly started swapping lines of poetry and secrets with, even as she tries to keep hating him.

Heartwrenching, smart, and bold, Dreaming of Antigone is a story about the jagged pieces that lie beneath the surface of the most seemingly perfect life...and how they can fit together to make something wholly unexpected.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-Life has been unfair to 16-year-old Andria: she was born with epilepsy, her father committed suicide when she was two, and five months ago, her twin sister, Iris, died of an apparent heroin overdose. As Andria tries to adjust to life without Iris, she focuses her energy on staying seizure-free for six months so she can obtain her much-wanted driver's license. During this time, she becomes reluctantly involved with former bad boy Alex, Iris's ex-boyfriend who Andria's family believed was a bad influence on Iris and responsible for her death. On top of feeling guilty for her relationship with Alex, Andria regrets so many other things, like her unawareness that Iris had developed a drug habit and her own actions on the night Iris died. Obvious similarities to Antigone abound, which Andria notes throughout the narrative, even referring to her own life as a Greek tragedy. There is confusion about who is good or bad in Andria and Iris's world, much like in Antigone and her sister Ismene's world. This novel is reminiscent of Celeste Ng's Everything I Never Told You (Penguin, 2014), though not as sophisticated and aimed squarely at young adult readers. VERDICT A well-done story with believable characters, a nicely paced plot (including some twists), and a satisfying ending.-Melissa Kazan, Horace Mann School, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2011.
