What's it about?
"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?."

This was such a good read which gave me all the feels.  It really gives you a look into someone with severe anxiety and the struggles that come with this mental illness.  Most books that I read that deal with mental illness only touch the surface on issues.  This was a very real look into the world of someone dealing with anxiety.  I personally cannot relate to the main character as I have never suffered from anxiety.  However; the author pulled me in and still made me connect with her.  Overall, an amazing read.
