It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA from the top of my TBR list!
THE WEIGHT OF ZERO
Releases 11 October 2016 from Delacorte Press
Seventeen-year-old Cath knows Zero is coming for her. Zero, the devastating depression born of Catherine’s bipolar disease, has almost triumphed once, propelling Catherine to her first suicide attempt. With Zero only temporarily restrained by the latest med du jour, time is running out. In an old ballet shoebox, Catherine stockpiles meds, preparing to take her own life when Zero next arrives.
But Zero’s return is delayed. Unexpected relationships along with the care of a new psychiatrist start to alter Catherine's perception of her diagnosis. But will this be enough? This is a story of loss and grief and hope and how the many shapes of love--maternal, romantic and platonic--impact a young woman’s struggle with mental illness.

As y'all know, I love books about mental illness, and a good one about bipolar disorder is certainly past due. Plus, the mental illness has an IdEnTiTy and a NaMe so I am all up for that! (Those of you who have been keeping up with COCA know what I'm talking about, yes?) Super excited!
Thanks for checking in, and I'll see you Saturday.
