Searching Saturday is a weekly meme created by the night is dark and full of books. The idea is to search for a book that is new to you and fits the weekly topic. After finding the book you write a post about the book and add the book to your TBR!
For today we must search for books that deal with an “important topic”. You must search for books that discuss a topic that is important to you. What classifies as ‘important’ is completely up to you!
Since I, myself, deal with mental health problems, this for me is an important topic. I will search for a book that deals with mental illness.
Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. And now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert.
Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at mealtime, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she’s worked so hard to avoid.
Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. But what no one knows is that Stevie doesn’t plan to stay that long. There are only twenty-seven days until the anniversary of her brother Josh’s death—the death she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she too will end her life.
Why I chose it:
I scrolled through popular mental illness books on Goodreads and was immediately drawn to the cover. It is beautiful. Once reading the synopsis I was sold. I, myself, have had a eating disorder and it’s nice to relate to the book your reading. Also eating disorders are an important topic to talk about. Their is a stigma surrounding it that needs to be broken.
