    It's nearly Christmas, and 17-year-old Paige needs to make a decision. Should she spend the holidays with her best friend (and longtime secret flame) Fitz and his family in their mountain cabin or tour New York City for a week with her mother? A high-school senior and aspiring travel writer, she longs to see the world outside Arizona, but her heart is like a compass needle, always pointing toward Fitz. Beset with anxieties and occasional panic attacks, Paige experiences that week in two alternate-universe first-person narratives, flipping from one to the other, chapter by chapter. Fate One records her adventures in New York, while Fate Two follows her to the mountain cabin. Throughout the novel, the dialogue flows well. McDowell creates a compelling portrayal of a young person immobilized by anxiety and panic disorders and lets readers know that help is available. At the same time, she offers an enjoyable story that consciously plays with the familiar trappings of rom-com holiday movies. A wry, amusing love story with one or two happy endings. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Born in the mountains and raised in the desert, Kara McDowell spent her childhood swimming, boating, and making up stories in her head. As the middle of five children, Kara entertained her family on long road trips by reading short mystery stories out loud and forcing everyone to guess the conclusion. After graduating from Arizona State University with a BA in English Literature, Kara worked as a freelance writer. Now she writes young adult novels from her home in Arizona, where she lives with her husband and three young sons.
