Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Hold Still by Nina LaCour is my pick for today's Waiting On Wednesday.

From Penguin Group USA website:

An arresting story about starting over after a friend’s suicide, froma breakthrough new voice in YA fiction

dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can’t.

Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend’s suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn’t die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid’s descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid—and Caitlin herself

Sounds like one my daughter would...I was going to say enjoy, but it's not really the sort of topic one enjoys reading about. What is the word that fits?
