Paperweight

By: Meg Haston
Location: FIC HAS
Genre: Mental health, YA

Another example of a book with a beautiful cover!

Stevie is 17 years old and she is trapped. She is trapped in her body and in a treatment center for eating disorders situated in a desert.
It isn't pleasant in the treatment centre. There are so many rules and regulations and Stevie is watched all the time - when she eats, when she goes to the bathroom, whenever she goes anywhere. Obviously we, the readers, know that she needs to be watched and helped, but Stevie certainly doesn't see it that way.

Stevie isn't planning on staying the 60 days that her dad signed her up for. She plans to escape in 27 days on the anniversary of her brother's death.

This book is about tough topics. It's a tale about a girl with an eating disorder and depression suffering grief over the death of her brother. It was an emotional book about relationships and the inside of a teenage girl's mind.
