Everything David held to be true comes into question when his sister dies.
CM Magazine"The story flows seamlessly which enables readers to grapple with controversial ideas alongside David. What Happened to Ivy is a valuable contribution to the growing realm of extreme 'problem novels' in today's young adult literature."
Resource Links"The novel is brilliant, causing the reader to really think about what it must be like to be an intelligence locked in a body with no controllable outward responses."
Quill & Quire[Starred review] "Stinson imbues David and the book's other characters with a level of depth that gives the story a documentary feel...The conflicted emotions are portrayed with a rawness that forces the reader to think, 'What if?' The novel also succeeds in presenting the situation in a judgement-free manner. There is no editorializing on Stinson's part, and the story's conclusion is left up in the air, allowing readers to form their own opinions of what should happen next.
In a YA landscape littered with dystopia, urban fantasy, and romantic fiction, Stinson offers an important wake-up call to young readers that there is more to life, and that it's not always easy."
