"Isobel? I'm afraid we're going to have to take it off." (from the first line)
Isobel Lindgren -- Izzy -- is a chearleader, the only sophomore on the entire squad. Pretty, blonde, and from a wealthy family, she's the kind of girl who everyone notices. And as much as she hates to admit it, Izzy loves that. So when Marco, a popular senior, asks her to a party, how can she say no? And how can she say no when he wants to drive her home?

But days later, when Izzy wakes up in the hospital, severely injured from a car accident, home has never felt so far away. Izzy's determined not to show how scared she is, but every day it gets harder and harder to accept that things will never be the same again. That's when she meets Rosamunde. Plain and withdrawn, Rosamunde is the kind of girl Izzy never noticed before the accident, but now it seems like she's the only one who can get through to Izzy and help her move on. And as Izzy comes to terms with the past, she can even see that there's a new richness to life, and that she possesses strengths she never dreamed she had.

Poignant and thought provoking, "Izzy, Willy-Nilly," by Newberry Award-winning author Cynthia Voigt, is sure to resonate with anyone who's ever felt as if they didn't belong.

Annotation:
Fifteen-year-old Isobel "Izzy" Lingard must have half of her right leg amputated after being involved in a car accident. A cheerleader who always took her happiness for granted, Izzy must now deal with not only adjusting to life with only one leg but also with the reactions of her family and friends. Some overcompensate and smother her with kindness, others avoid her, and the boy who caused the accident won't acknowledge responsibility for what he did. As Izzy struggles with accepting what has happened to her, she discovers that she has more inner strength than she ever imagined.
Author Bio
Cynthia Voigt
Cynthia Voigt decided in the ninth grade that she wanted to become a writer. She attended Smith College, and after graduation moved to New York where she worked for an advertising agency. After marrying her first husband in 1964, she moved with him to New Mexico where she became a teacher. The couple had one daughter and divorced in 1972. Voigt and her daughter moved to Maryland, where she continued to work as a teacher. It was while searching for books to share with her class of fifth graders that Voigt began to get ideas for young adult and juvenile books that she could write herself. Her first book, HOMECOMING, was published in 1981. The sequel to that book, DICEY'S SONG, won the Newbery Medal in 1983 and, the following year, A SOLITARY BLUE--a companion piece to DICEY'S SONG--was named a Newbery Honor Book.
