Waiting on Wednesday (39)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can not wait to read! This meme is the perfect way to add books to your TBR list. Along with upcoming releases, I sometimes include books that I have not had the chance to read or buy even if they have already come out.

From Barnes & Noble:
In the vein of Laurie Halse Anderson's Wintergirls, this emotionally haunting and beautifully written young adult debut delves into the devastating impact of trauma and loss.

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 meal time, 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 dead she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she, too, will end her life.

Paperweight follows Stevie's journey as she struggles not only with this life-threatening eating disorder, but with the question of whether she can ever find absolution for the mistakes of her past...and whether she truly deserves to.

Although I'm excited for this one, I'm a little apprehensive too. Books that deal with these types of issues can be either a hit or a miss; a lot of the time the disorders and depressions are misrepresented. I'm hoping that this isn't the case though because this sounds really good. And it's a debut which is another bonus, I love new authors!

  2. Yay for new authors! I'm really excited to read this one too. Although, I can get very hesitant when it comes to books like this because, like you said, the topic at hand can sometimes get misinterpreted. I hope that isn't the case with this one!
