Broken,
by Elizabeth Pulford, illustrated by Angus Gomes (Walker Books):

Zara is in a coma, immersed in a subconscious world where she has to come to terms both with the terrible accident that took her brother’s life and a traumatic event from her childhood.

The first-person narrative is always Zara’s voice but the varying styles add interest to the story – we go deep inside her subconscious and back out to an account of events and the voices in the hospital room, and the story is accompanied with pop-art, comic-style illustrations.

This is excellent teen fiction by an award-winning New Zealand author.
