PAPERWEIGHT

Genre/s: Young Adult-Contemporary
Release Date: July 7th 2015
Publisher: HarperTeen
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:
Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. In her body. And now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert.
Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at mealtime, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she’s worked so hard to avoid.

Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. But what no one knows is that Stevie doesn't plan to stay that long. There are only twenty-seven days until the anniversary of her brother Josh’s death—the death she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she too will end her life.

In this emotionally haunting and beautifully written young adult debut, Meg Haston delves into the devastating impact of trauma and loss, while posing the question: Why are some consumed by their illness while others embark on a path toward recovery?


Why?

I saw this book through a friend (Shannon from It Starts at Midnight) on Goodreads, she added it to her TBR shelf. The cover really caught my attention, it's simple and pretty. I'm very intrigued with the synopsis too, I love to read books that deal with real life issues. I'm really looking forward to read this very soon! This is another contemporary novel to look forward this coming 2015! #yay

  2. Hey Gail! I'm hoping to get a copy of this book when it comes out, too. I'd definitely save for this! Sadly, I haven't read the Mara Dyer series yet, though I'm planning very soon. Thanks for stopping by! :)
