How It Feels to Float

How It Feels to Float

Books

A deeply hopeful YA novel about living with mental illness that's perfect for fans of Girl in Pieces "Profoundly moving . . . Will take your breath away." --Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces Biz knows how to float. She has her people, her posse, her mom and the twins. She has Grace. And she has her dad, who tells her about the little kid she was, and who shouldn't be here but is. So Biz doesn't tell anyone anything. Not about her dark, runaway thoughts, not about kissing Grace or noticing Jasper, the new boy. And she doesn't tell anyone about her dad. Because her dad died when she was seven. And Biz knows how to float, right there on the surface--normal okay regular fine. But after what happens on the beach--first in the ocean, and then in the sand--the tethers that hold Biz steady come undone. Dad disappears and, with him, all comfort. It might be easier, better, sweeter to float all the way away? Or maybe stay a little longer, find her father, bring him back to her. Or maybe--maybe maybe maybe--there's a third way Biz just can't see yet. Debut author Helena Fox tells a story about love and grief, about inter-generational mental illness, and how living with it is both a bridge to someone loved and lost and, also, a chasm. She explores the hard and beautiful places loss can take us, and honors those who hold us tightly when the current wants to tug us out to sea. "Lyrical and profoundly affecting." --Kirkus (starred review)"This book will explode you into atoms." --Margo Lanagan, author of Tender Morsels"Mesmerizing and timely." --Bustle"Helena Fox's novel delivers. It is exquisite. Read it." --Cath Crowley, author of Words in Deep Blue"Just beautiful." --Booklist (starred review)"This is not a book; it is a work of art." --Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned
