I'm excited to be part of the Bloomsbury blog tour for When Reason Breaks by Cindy L. Rodriguez.
First, here's a little more about the book:
When Reason Breaks
by Cindy L. Rodriguez
Published February 10, 2015
A Goth girl with an attitude problem, Elizabeth Davis must learn to control her anger before it destroys her. Emily Delgado appears to be a smart, sweet girl, with a normal life, but as depression clutches at her, she struggles to feel normal. Both girls are in Ms. Diaz’s English class, where they connect to the words of Emily Dickinson. Both are hovering on the edge of an emotional precipice. One of them will attempt suicide. And with Dickinson’s poetry as their guide, both girls must conquer their personal demons to ever be happy.
For my stop on the tour, I was asked to write some book spine poetry, which is a fun thing that I rarely find time to do.
the walls around us free to fall
when reason breaks, damage done
I'll give you the sun
if you find me
when reason breaks, just listen
before I fall
