Waiting on Wednesday [4]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine - spotlighting books that haven't been released yet!

My Waiting on Wednesday this week is...

Paper Weight By Meg Haston
Expected Release Date: July 7th 2015

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?

I've been waiting around for a book like this to come about since I read Cut By Patricia McCormick in high school. Stories that deal with self-harm and the journey of self struggle is so fascinating and truly eye opening. Paper Weight has a phenomenal synopsis that drew me in! Easily going to be picking this beauty up when it is released in July!

  2. This sounds really sad. I read a lot of contemporaries but I don't know if this one is for me. I hope you like it.
