10 Things I Can See From Here

av Carrie Mac
lesbiska bokbloggen

Maeve har lidit av oro och ängslan så länge hon kan minnas. Det blir värre när hennes mamma behöver resa bort i 6 månader och hon skickas att bo hos sin pappa i en annan stad. Hennes pappa kämpar att hålla sig nykter och hennes bonusmamma är gravid. Tur i oturen så träffar hon Salix, som är fullständigt orädd, och de inleder en romans som gör att flytten inte känns riktigt lika jobbig. En av få ungdomsböcker med temat psykisk ohälsa.

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella's Finding Audrey and Nicola Yoon's Everything, Everything, this is the poignant and uplifting story of Maeve, who is dealing with anxiety while falling in love with a girl who is not afraid of anything.

Think positive.
Don’t worry; be happy.
Keep calm and carry on.

Maeve has heard it all before. She’s been struggling with severe anxiety for a long time, and as much as she wishes it was something she could just talk herself out of, it’s not. She constantly imagines the worst, composes obituaries in her head, and is always ready for things to fall apart. To add to her troubles, her mom—the only one who really gets what Maeve goes through—is leaving for six months, so Maeve will be sent to live with her dad in Vancouver.

Vancouver brings a slew of new worries, but Maeve finds brief moments of calm (as well as even more worries) with Salix, a local girl who doesn’t seem to worry about anything. Between her dad’s wavering sobriety, her very pregnant stepmom insisting on a home birth, and her bumbling courtship with Salix, this summer brings more catastrophes than even Maeve could have foreseen. Will she be able to navigate through all the chaos to be there for the people she loves?
