Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2013
An original and captivating book for young adults by the Laura Jarrett, critically acclaimed author of Skin Deep. I picked up the book and thumbed through the pages. Names in alphabetical order, names with meanings, names I knew, names I'd never heard of. How to pick? Nothing that would stand out, nothing that would link me to the past - those were the instructions. The past. As if everything that had gone before this moment was buried already. Holly is fifteen years old, but she's only been "Holly" for a matter of months. Because of something that happened, she and her family have had to enter witness protection and have all assumed new identities. All, that is, except her sister Katie, who is autistic. Starting at a new school mid-term is hard enough at the best of times, and Holly has no clue who she is any more. Lonely and angry, she reaches out to friends - new and old. But one wrong move will put all their lives in danger. Laura Jarrett is one of the finest authors writing books for young adults in Britain today. Praise for By Any Other Name 'Intensely romantic, really thrilling ...Of the 60 or so books I've read so far this year, this is one of the very, very best.' Bookbag 'I loved it and I can't stop raving about it.' Guardian

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spannend und voller Gefühl 7. August 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
Als Holly mit ihrer Familie umzieht, muss sie in der neuen Schule und im neuen zu Hause komplett neu anfangen, ohne Feunde – und ohne Vergangenheit. Denn Holly war Zeugin eines schrecklichen Verbrechens und ist nun mit ihrer Familie im Zeugenschutzprogramm.
Ihr altes Ich ist ausgelöscht, nicht mal ihr Name gehört noch ihr. So fällt ihr das neue Leben unglaublich schwer, da sie eigentlich nicht so schüchtern und unauffällig ist, wie sie sich jetzt verhalten soll und das Gefühl hat sich selbst verloren zu haben. Dazu kommt die ständige Angst entdeckt zu werden, die Sorge um ihre Eltern und vor allem ihre kleine Schwester Katie, die autistisch ist.
Doch nicht alles ist schlecht in der neuen Umgebung und als Holly beginnt sich zu öffnen, fängt sie langsam an sich selbst ganz neu kennen zu lernen, dabei hilft ihr vor allem der anfangs gehasste ‘Emo-Junge’ Joe. Doch die Schatten der Vergangenheit lauern überall.

Laura Jarrat schrieb in ihrem ersten Buch ‘Skindeep’ über ein Mädchen, das nach einem Brand entstellt ist und auch in ‘By Any Other Name’ geht es um ein Mädchen dessen komplette Welt sich von heute auf morgen ändert, wenn auch auf ganz andere Weise.
Hollys Gefühlswelt wird sehr eindringlich beschrieben und so kann man auch wenn sie sich vielleicht mal nicht so toll verhält immer verstehen warum sie das tut und wie unglaublich schwer es sein muss von heute auf morgen eine andere Person sein zu müssen.
Es ist unterhaltsam und ergreifend mitzuerleben, wie sie die ersten Schritte in das neue Leben macht und sich dabei Stück für Stück, wenn auch mit einigen Umwegen, selbst findet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth an Edgar nomination 1. März 2014
Von John Rogers ClarkIV - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Holly is new. In fact everything about Holly is new. It had to be that way after her autistic younger sister, Katie, noticed the white car and her life went crazy. She was nearly killed during the disaster that followed her impulsive act. Now, she and her family are in the British witness protection program, uprooted from everything familiar. Gone is the home, the summer cottage on the ocean, the vacations to other countries and her friends. She's been briefed again and again about how to avoid making a slip about her former life, but by playing by these new rules, she's lost herself.
On the day they move to the new house well north of where she grew up, Holly watches as kids pass by on their way home from school. “His arms are bare despite the wind, but he's got headphones jammed in his ears and his hands are stuffed in the pockets of his trousers. He slouches along as if he isn't aware that the skin on his arms is goosebumped and mottled purple with the cold. Black hair flops over his face and his head is down, staring at the pavement, so I'm safe watching him. Metal glints in his ear and his eyebrow. ...Dark, hostile eyes in a pale face glare at me. Eyes so hostile that I take a step back, even though I'm annoyed with myself for doing it.”
This is Holly's introduction to Joe, who she immediately labels Emo Boy. When they're in English class, they spar over a war poem. This is her first inkling that he's not Emo, but sad and very smart. Still, she can't afford to get involved with anyone because of the danger it might create if someone finds out what led her family here. Even so, when the attraction begins, neither Holly nor Joe can stop it from leading to a terribly scary conclusion.
This is a terrific combination mystery and love story. The author does a stellar job of revealing the events that led to Holly and her family entering the witness protection program as well as why Joe is so sad, angry and guarded. The way their relationship evolves, despite neither being comfortable trusting anyone, is also well done. The climax at the end makes for truly nail biting reading. This isn't for the faint of heart, but older teens and adults who like YA fiction will find this a truly rewarding read. I hope it picks up an Edgar nomination.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great YA Cont. 16. September 2013
Von Rebecca Berto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
4.0--4.5 stars

I started this and thought, "I can relax. This is going to be a wonderful YA book about discovery and growing up and the troubles." Ah, it was!

I'm not sure what it was but the witness protection storyline hit my spot. I loved watching these two girls--the past and present--fight for an identity. The book never ever got boring and I think I read it in just 48 hours.

One storyline didn't tie up and one crucial element at the height of the climax was so utterly unbelievable I got a teeny bit mad but otherwise I loved this book and can excuse them.

If you love YA Contemporary, this is a great one to read.

4.0--4.5 stars
5.0 von 5 Sternen A slow burn romantic thriller 12. August 2013
Von Mr. John Booth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is Laura Jarratt's second novel and I love it. Laura has a gift for seeing into the teenage mind, especially that of someone in trouble, and Holly is definitely in trouble.

Caught up in the witness protection program it's obvious from the outset that Holly is in danger and that danger encompasses her younger sister and parents. But to a sixteen year old girl that danger is as nothing to the loss of her friends and her place in the world. She doesn't know who she is or even what she wants to be.

As she struggles to assert herself in her new surroundings she makes a lot of mistakes, but what she is running from is never far from her mind and that drives her into strange places.

The joy of this novel is the way Jarratt builds up the suspense to the inevitable conclusion and how she draws us in to Holly's world and her danger. Well worth reading and we can only hope that her third novel is not far away.
