Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!
This week's picks both have a psychological element to them (and could possibly work for my Psychtember event!)
The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin
can’t quite face her mother’s alcoholism even though it sucks to spend
all her time and energy keeping them afloat—making sure her mom gets to

almost killing both them and Jane’s best friend, Jane can no longer deny
her mom is spiraling out of control. Jane has only one place to turn:
her older brother Ethan, who left years ago to go to college. A summer

and space she needs to figure out whether her life still includes her
A book about stormchasers? Awesome! And I love the richness of the blue in the cover.
Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price
"While at a clinic
receiving treatment for anorexia, Zoe is instructed to write letters.
Through letters, she tells her mother and brother about the clinic; the
doctors, the food, her struggle to get better. But she tells her best
friend Elise about the strange goings on around her, the shady
relationships, the dark mysteries. When the lights go out, the place
turns into someplace else.
While her mother and brother write back, their letters filled with
cheerful encouragement—Zoe’s letters to Elise remain unanswered. As Zoe
struggles to understand why her best friend would cut her off, she must
unravel the secrets that surround her in the clinic."
It sounds like there's a bit of a mystery to this one as well as the anorexia storyline. Shady relationships and strange goings-on? Kinda creepy...
