Hey guys! Misty and I are so excited for another month of #WednesdayYA. If you missed our liveshow on The Raven Boys but still want to see what we thought, check out the video.
Our choices so far this year have been heavy on the dystopian and fantasy side, so to pick our May book, we tossed all of the contemporary titles on the #WednesdayYA shelf in a bag, and picked one at random.
Fifteen-year-old Aura Ambrose has been hiding a secret. Her mother, a talented artist and art teacher, is slowly being consumed by schizophrenia, and Aura has been her sole caretaker ever since Aura's dad left them. Convinced that "creative" equals crazy, Aura shuns her own artistic talent. But as her mother sinks deeper into the darkness of mental illness, the hunger for a creative outlet draws Aura toward the depths of her imagination. Just as desperation threatens to swallow her whole, Aura discovers that art, love, and family are profoundly linked—and together may offer an escape from her fears.(Summary from GoodReads)
We'll be having our liveshow to discuss this one on May 27th at 8:30 p.m. EST. See you there!
