Author: Brian James
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Release Date: March 27, 2012

Summary: Alec and Sabrina are crazy in love. Problem is: Sabrina’s really crazy.

Sabrina, an artist, is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her parents check her into the Wellness Center. There she meets Alec, who is convinced it's the world that's crazy, not the two of them. They are meant to be together; they are special. But when Alec starts to convince Sabrina that her treatment will wipe out everything that makes her creative, she worries that she'll lose hold of her dreams and herself. Should she listen to her doctor? Her decision may have fatal consequences.

This plot sounds do incredibly intriguing to me, and so completely different from anything else I've ever read!! I am really looking forward to reading this-- and plus, isn't the cover just gorgeous? I love the title, and love that it's written by a male author. We need MORE male YA authors, don't you think??

What is everyone else waiting on this week?

  1. This sounds really interesting indeed. And male author! Awesome. I wish you'd linked the GR page. No matter though. ;)

    Might I add the cover matches your WOW banner, hehe.

  2. Agreed with the not many male authors and the fact we need more. They come up with amazing storylines-this being an example. Seen this around-it looks really interesting.

  6. Glad you're waiting on it...and from the looks of your page, you'll probably be thrilled to know it opens with a Lewis Carroll quote, which is also where the title comes from:

    "Is all our life, then, but a dream
    Seen faintly in the golden gleam"

  8. This sounds great, I don't think mental illness is written about enough in YA. Definitely agree we don't have enough male YA authors either

  19. I'm really intrigued by this one as well. It seems like there are a lot of books about mental illness coming out lately -- they always make for a very psychological, thought-provoking read. I love the title too -- in this context, it's really creepy! And yes, we DEFINITELY need more male authors!

  20. I didn't even noticed it was by a male author! The book sounds a-m-a-z-i-n-g! It's on my wishlist. I love mental health related books!

  21. That cover reminds me of the US one for Maureen Johnson's The Name of the Star, but the premise sounds interesting.
