Change Places with Me: Lois Metzler
Publication Date: June 14th, 2016
I belive I saw somewhere that this novel is about mental health. Being very interested in psychology, I can't wait to see how depression manifests in Rose. Because unlike the typical perception, it doesn't look the same for everybody!
Cassie's Waiting On:
Publication Date: March 22, 2016
Eden was always good at being good. Starting high school didn’t change who she was. But the night her brother’s best friend rapes her, Eden’s world capsizes. What was once simple, is now complex. What Eden once loved—who she once loved—she now hates. What she thought she knew to be true, is now lies. Nothing makes sense anymore, and she knows she’s supposed to tell someone what happened but she can’t. So she buries it instead. And she buries the way she used to be.
Told in four parts—freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year—this provocative debut reveals the deep cuts of trauma. But it also demonstrates one young woman’s strength as she navigates the disappointment and unbearable pains of adolescence, of first love and first heartbreak, of friendships broken and rebuilt, and while learning to embrace a power of survival she never knew she had hidden within her heart.
This is another one that's a bit out of my comfort zone because these types of books need a certain type of author in order for me to like it. I think that by telling the story in 4 parts, each a different year, we'll be able to watch the character grow and rebuild her life. While I'm going to take a risk with this novel, I'm hoping it will pay off.
