When Reason Breaks

Yesterday was the book birthday of my writing buddy Cindy Rodriguez. When Reason Breaks is a beautifully written contemporary YA about teenage depression.

Cindy’s done a lovely job of entwining the subject with the work and life of poet Emily Dickinson, and it’s an eye-opening read (for me, at least) on how quiet depression can be. As a mum to two preteens, it was kind of scary.

Anyhow, Cindy wrote a very sweet blog piece on the publishing process, from writing the MS, to getting signed on by her agent, all the way through to seeing it on the shelves of the bookstore for the first time.

Check it out! And then go buy the book. Also, buy kleenex. Lots and lots of kleenex.
