When V's life crumbles around her, she has two options: let it take her down with it or dive straight in Virginia "V" Dunn is alone when her dog is hit by a car. Lucky's back leg is shattered, and when she comforts him, his blood is wet on her hands. Suddenly, the monotony of V's suburban life dissolves: Lucky is in a cast; her best friend, Eileen, is avoiding her; her mother's drinking is getting worse; and her father is sick with a mysterious illness. Although V is surrounded by family, she is the loneliest girl in town. As V begins to question everything-death, friendship, family, betrayal-she finds there are few easy answers. The people she thought she knew are strangers, and life's meaning eludes her. Into this mystery walks the captivating Jane, and V soon realizes that the only way forward seems to break every rule, and go beyond all limitations. "V for Victory!" -The Advocate "Poetic . . .

[She] is braver, willing to imagine a world in which kids, like adults, write poetry, and in which adults, like kids, are lost." -Noah Berlatsky, The Atlantic "Dive is a beautiful YA novel of the highest quality." -Nora Olsen, author of Frenemy of the People Stacey Donovan is a critically acclaimed author of fiction and nonfiction for adults and young adults.
