Description

Wednesday morning is like any other morning, but different. Casey wakes up, gets ready for school. But Sylvia, her stepmother, gets up too-to see her off, she says. That's different. And when Casey comes home from school that day, Sylvia is gone. Casey's no baby. She can take care of herself. But her stepmother has never done anything like this before, and Casey has no idea how long she'll be gone. Or if she'll come back. In New York City, a girl's got to be tough. But when the landlord's teenage foster son offers to help, Casey is more than willing to accept. Until it turns out his help comes at a price. And if Casey says yes, she'll be breaking the law. For any kid who's dreamed about their own independence, Say Yes will be an eye-opening, heart-stopping read.

Professional reviews

"The combination of compelling story and fabulous delivery results in a winning audiobook. At 12, Casey is both tough and vulnerable, careening from self-reflective and resourceful to whiny and indignant after her stepmother, Sylvia, abandons her in their New York City apartment to run off with her boyfriend. Paulie, Casey's 16-year-old neighbor, directs her foray into petty theft but also buoys her spirit and bolsters her courage as she struggles to survive. From Sylvia's gruff Italian boss to her pragmatic and nasally voiced mother, the characters are a memorable constellation of individuals revolving around a girl in crisis. T.B.
