Today’s Teaser Tuesday: Under Rose-Tainted Skies
Author: Louise Gornall
Publisher: Clarion Books
Publication Date: January 3, 2017
At seventeen, Norah has accepted that the four walls of her house delineate her life. She knows that fearing everything from inland tsunamis to odd numbers is irrational, but her mind insists the world outside is too big, too dangerous. So she stays safe inside, watching others’ lives through her windows and social media feed.
But when Luke arrives on her doorstep, he doesn’t see a girl defined by medical terms and mental health. Instead, he sees a girl who is funny, smart, and brave. And Norah likes what he sees.
Their friendship turns deeper, but Norah knows Luke deserves a normal girl. One who can walk beneath the open sky. One who is unafraid of kissing. One who isn’t so screwed up. Can she let him go for his own good—or can Norah learn to see herself through Luke’s eyes?
I am loving this book so far! I love Norah’s character and really feel bad for her since she goes through so much. Although I do not have the conditions that Norah does, I feel like this book really portrays mental illness and what it feels like in a way that is realistic and comprehendible.
Book Quotes: Under Rose-Tainted Skies
