#Review #Giveaway of Fig by Sarah Elizabeth Schantz

Love and sacrifice intertwine in this brilliant and provocative debut of rare beauty about a girl dealing with her mother’s schizophrenia and her own mental illness.

Fig’s world lies somewhere between reality and fantasy.

But as she watches Mama slowly come undone, it becomes hard to tell what is real and what is not, what is fun and what is frightening. To save Mama, Fig begins a fierce battle to bring her back. She knows that her daily sacrifices, like not touching metal one day or avoiding water the next, are the only way to cure Mama.

The problem is that in the process of a daily sacrifice, Fig begins to lose herself as well, increasingly isolating herself from her classmates and engaging in self-destructive behavior that only further sets her apart.

Spanning the course of Fig’s childhood from age six to nineteen, this deeply provocative novel is more than a portrait of a mother, a daughter, and the struggle that comes with all-consuming love. It is an acutely honest and often painful portrayal of life with mental illness and the lengths to which a young woman must go to handle the ordeals—real or imaginary—thrown her way.
 About the Author

Biography

Sarah Elizabeth Schantz lives with her family in an old farmhouse in Colorado where she is surrounded by sky and century-old cottonwoods. Her debut novel, Fig, comes out from Simon & Schuster, April 7th, 2015.


Haunting and beautiful Fig was amazing.  This book is all about love and sacrifice.  This book is very dark.  It deals with the fact that Fig decides to sacrifice herself in her mothers place.  It was not a fantasy book but could have been with a few tweaks. This book was very character driven and was amazing.  If you like books about self sacrifice then this is the book for you and it should not be missed.
