THE WEIGHT OF ZERO
Seventeen-year-old Cath knows Zero is coming for her. Zero, the devastating depression born of Catherine’s bipolar disease, has almost triumphed once, propelling Cath to her first suicide attempt. With Zero only temporarily restrained by the latest med du jour, time is running out. In an old ballet shoebox, Cath stockpiles meds, preparing to take her own life when Zero arrives.
But Zero’s return is delayed. New relationships along with the care of a new psychiatrist start to alter Catherine's perception of her diagnosis. But will this be enough? This is a story of loss and grief and hope and how the many shapes of love – maternal, romantic and platonic – impact a young woman’s struggle with mental illness.

I'm actually so excited to read this book! The cover is awesome, but the synopsis has me really intrigued. It sounds like a really unique portrayal of mental health issues. I've always been really interested in different takes on mental health struggles since they're so personal and often hard to grasp. Really intrigued to read this and maybe get a chance to pick the authors brain for an interview!
Love the look of this cover, and excited to read it. One of my most-anticipated reads of 2016. I'm always looking for more accurate and honest representation of mental illness in YA.
This looks amazing and unique. I feel like I would really enjoy it. The cover would look amazing on my shelf as well!!
The cover is very interesting and unique and I love the way the circles are all around her. I think books about mental health issues are always interesting, but this one especially intrigued me and got my attention and I'm really looking forward to it!
Oh, and by the way, I LOVE talking to authors. It gives so much more context to the book!
Thanks so much for the wonderful comments! I can't wait for the book to be released. And I'm really looking forward to chatting with the winners of the raffle and hearing their thoughts. It will be like having a mini-bookclub!
Thanks so much! Happy reading!
The cover makes this book look very interesting. It stood out from the others and the synopsis makes me want to read the book even more!
I really admire the courageous approach some YA writers have taken to mental illness -- whether accurate or otherwise, protagonists with such difficulties cannot help but destigmatize people who have challenges adjusting to life's changing circumstances (either because of an illness or a lifestyle diffiulty, or both). I am definitely interested in this storyline! Thanks and cheers, Kara S
