HEROINE

By: Mindy McGinnis

Release Date: March 12, 2019

Publisher: Katherine Tegen

 
 
About the Book

Three screws in her hip.

Two months until spring training. 

One answer to all her problems.

Mickey Catalan’s life has been littered with struggles—from the scars that tell of past injuries, to her parents’ divorce, to the daily complexity of finding the right words to fit in socially. Mickey is no stranger to pain, emotional or physical.

When a car crash sidelines her months before softball season, Mickey has to find a way to hold on to her spot as the catcher for a team expected to make a historic tournament run. Behind the plate is the only place she’s ever felt comfortable, and the painkillers she’s been prescribed can help her get back there.

The pills do more than take away pain; they make her feel good. With a new circle of friends—fellow injured athletes, others with just time to kill—Mickey finds peaceful acceptance, and people with whom words come easily, even if it is just the pills loosening her tongue. But as the pressure to be Mickey Catalan heightens, her need increases, and it becomes less about pain and more about want, something that could send her spiraling out of control.

Edgar Award–winning author Mindy McGinnis lays bare an honest exploration of the opioid crisis through the eyes of one girl, a visceral and necessary story about addiction, family, friendship, and hope.

The cover is awesome! I think it is fitting with the description. The character seems to be fading away as is the title. I’m so excited to read this!

The cover is perfect for the very important message of this book. Pain killers make one fade away. This is a very important subject. Mindy McGinnis is such a good author she will handle writing about it knowing the importance and sensitivity. I can't wait to read this book.

What an eerie cover! The way the letters fade to reveal more and more subtle messages is honestly so meaningful (reminds me of the weight of the cover of The Female of the Species too!)

The last few books from Mindy have been hard-hitting, addressing rape and mental illness, and now this one will be taking on another hard subject, addiction. Having wrestled with pain and having to take medication for chronic illness, I can’t wait to read what Mindy does with this difficult issue, and I know this book will be a good one; her writing is getting better and better!
The cover design is amazing; it does indeed make me think of how painkillers make you fade away, but also how everything ‘disappears into the smoke’...it gets blurry and hard to see when you’re enveloped in that fog.
I absolutely can not wait for ‘Heroine’.

The cover is really good. I like that the story addresses painkiller addiction. There needs to be more books about this topic, especially for teens.
