Description
When Saba Khan's apartment burns in a mysterious fire, possibly a hate crime, her Chicago high school rallies around her. Her family moves rent-free into a luxury apartment, Saba's Facebook page explodes, and she starts (secretly) dating a popular boy. Then a quirky piece of art donated to a school fund-raising effort for the Khans is revealed to be an unknown work by famous outsider artist Henry Danger, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and Saba's life turns upside down again. Should Saba's family have all that money? Or should it go to the students who found the art? Or to the school? And just what caused that fire? Greed, jealousy, and suspicion create an increasingly tangled web as students and teachers debate who should get the money and begin to point fingers and make accusations. The true story of the fire that sets events in motion and what happens afterward gradually comes together in an innovative narrative made up of journal entries, interviews, articles, letters, text messages, and other documents.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The structure of this book, composed of multiple viewpoints and documents, almost mandates an ensemble production. Its success is enhanced by the well-acted, skillful orchestration of its five narrators. Listeners will soon surmise the distress of a school that is locked in debate over the mysterious discovery of priceless, controversial art, which is later destroyed. Ethnicities, moods, ages, and personalities of the various characters are continually reflected against context-providing letters, texts and interviews. Plot questions about who should benefit from the insurance monies and who ruined the art underlie issues relating to greed, jealousy, dreams, and the marginalization of outsiders.

        January 27, 2014
        In his intriguing second book, Klise (Love Drugged) tells the story of a Pakistani family rebuilding their lives after their apartment is destroyed in a fire set by an arsonist. Coming to their aid, students from sophomore Saba Khan���s prestigious Chicago high school plan a community fundraiser to help replace what her family lost. But when one of the items in the auction is reported missing���a collection of drawings supposedly painted by reclusive (real-life) outsider artist Henry Darger, worth half a million dollars���fingers are pointed and rumors circulate about who might have stolen it. Through emails, texts, journal entries, interview transcripts, newspaper clips, and official documents that pull in the perspectives of students, teachers, and others, Klise simultaneously reveals details about what might have transpired while allowing characters��� darker motives���prejudice, envy, greed���to emerge. Astute readers may solve the whodunits early on, but the question of ���how far would be willing to go to make dreams come true��� propels the book forward to its scandalous conclusion. Ages 12���up.
