How It Feels to Float by Helena Fox
If you fell in love with Kathleen Glasgow's Girl in Pieces, then chances are you'll rip through Helena Fox's profoundly moving new YA novel, How It Feels to Float. In it we meet Biz, who focuses on trying to "float" on the surface of her life, appearing normal and not bothering her loved ones with all the dark thoughts that plague her. But as anyone living with mental illness knows, you can only fake that everything is OK for so long. The novel explores intergenerational mental illness in a way that is nothing short of exquisite.
