Alice, the main character in The World Between Us by Sarah Ann Juckes, has a chronic illness.
From the publisher:
Alice may be bed-bound, but every day Stream Cast brings the world to her. From the streets of Tokyo to a masterclass in video games, she experiences other people’s wild and exciting lives all without ever leaving her room.
But everything changes when Alice is introduced to a new streamer.
Rowan encourages Alice to stop watching, and start taking control. But Rowan has a secret he’s trying to hide from Alice – and from himself.
