Waiting on Wednesday: When Reason Breaks

This post is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm waiting on:

When Reason Breaks by  
Release: February 15, 2015
Why:  Because it deals with some issues many teens face.

13 Reasons Why meets the poetry of Emily Dickinson in this gripping debut novel perfect for fans of Sara Zarr or Jennifer Brown.

A Goth girl with an attitude problem, Elizabeth Davis must learn to control her anger before it destroys her. Emily Delgado appears to be a smart, sweet girl, with a normal life, but as depression clutches at her, she struggles to feel normal. Both girls are in Ms. Diaz’s English class, where they connect to the words of Emily Dickinson. Both are hovering on the edge of an emotional precipice. One of them will attempt suicide. And with Dickinson’s poetry as their guide, both girls must conquer their personal demons to ever be happy. 

In an emotionally taut novel with a richly diverse cast of characters, readers will relish in the poetry of Emily Dickinson and be completely swept up in the turmoil of two girls grappling with demons beyond their control.


  1. I haven't heard of this one yet. It sounds really good. I loved 13 Reasons Why. Beautiful cover too.

  2. I read and enjoyed 13 Reasons Why. I'm just not convinced I would like this because I'm not the greatest fan of poetry.
