Waiting On Wednesday #3 - "Paperweight" by Meg Haston

8:10 PM

Title: Paperweight
Author: Meg Haston
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication date: July 7th 2015




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?

My thoughts:


I'm so excited for this one!. Books that deal with subjects like this one rarely cease to captivate me and make it into the height of my favorites. They always hit home for me. I can already envision myself curled up with a fluffy blanket, a warm cup of coffee, and this book in my hands. Too bad I didn't get approved for an eARC. meh :( July 7th needs to get here now!
