Evie and Lottie are twin sisters, but they couldn’t be more different. Evie’s sharp and funny. Lottie’s a day-dreamer. Evie’s the fighter, Lottie’s the peace-maker. What they do have in common is their Jewishness – even though the family isn’t religious. When their mother gets a high-profile job and is targeted by antisemitic trolls on social media, the girls brush it off at first – but then the threats start getting uglier. . .
- What We’re Scared Of is a taut thriller, a tale of sibling friendship and rivalry – and a searing look at what happens when you scratch beneath the surface.
Our February 2021 Teen Book of the Month
Finally, for my Teen Book of the Month pick for February I have chosen What We’re Scared Of. From author Keren David, this tells the story of twin sisters Evie and Lottie who couldn’t be more different. But when their mother gets a high-profile job and is targeted by antisemitic trolls on social media, the girls brush it off at first – but then the threats start getting uglier… Modern-day anti-semitism is sadly an increasing issue, which makes it essential it is addressed through novels like this. Keren’s approachable, engaging text aims to make sense of both the world we’re in and the response to it. What We’re Scared Ofinterweaves real Holocaust survivor testimony, made possible through Keren’s work with JW3 (a hub for Jewish arts, culture, learning and life), and The Jewish Chronicles (an influential Jewish newspaper). What We’re Scared Of is a taut thriller, a tale of sibling friendship and rivalry – and a searing look at what happens when you scratch beneath the surface.
