WAIT ON: When Reason Breaks by Cindy L. Rodriguez

Title: When Reason Breaks
Author: Cindy L. Rodriguez
Expected Publication Date: February 10th, 2015
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

13 Reasons Why meets the poetry of Emily Dickinson in this gripping debut novel perfect for fans of Sara Zarr or Jennifer Brown.

A Goth girl with an attitude problem, Elizabeth Davis must learn to control her anger before it destroys her. Emily Delgado appears to be a smart, sweet girl, with a normal life, but as depression clutches at her, she struggles to feel normal. Both girls are in Ms. Diaz’s English class, where they connect to the words of Emily Dickinson. Both are hovering on the edge of an emotional precipice. One of them will attempt suicide. And with Dickinson’s poetry as their guide, both girls must conquer their personal demons to ever be happy.

In an emotionally taut novel with a richly diverse cast of characters, readers will relish in the poetry of Emily Dickinson and be completely swept up in the turmoil of two girls grappling with demons beyond their control.

Why I'm looking forward to it:
  • I have an instinct to go and read novels about depression. I like to think I could find comfort by resorting to characters and plots I possible have a resonance with. I've also always always been curious as to how fictional characters handle depression because, you know, readers have this automatic adoration for people who live in make-up worlds.

What are you looking forward to this month?

'Til next time! :-----)
