The Weight of Zero by @karenfortunati #BookReview

 
 
Seventeen-year-old Cath knows Zero is coming for her. Zero, the devastating depression born of Catherine’s bipolar disease, has almost triumphed once, propelling Catherine to her first suicide attempt. With Zero only temporarily restrained by the latest med du jour, time is running out. In an old ballet shoebox, Catherine stockpiles meds, preparing to take her own life when Zero next arrives.

But Zero’s return is delayed. Unexpected relationships along with the care of a new psychiatrist start to alter Catherine's perception of her diagnosis. But will this be enough? This is a story of loss and grief and hope and how the many shapes of love – maternal, romantic and platonic – impact a young woman’s struggle with mental illness.





Karen Fortunati is a former attorney who attends graduate school at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, and works part-time as a museum educator. She lives in Connecticut with her family and rescue dogs.



This debut was a wonder to read.  Dealing with the world of one teenager with mental issues was a bold choice for someones first book.  I have to say that this author did a wonderful job with it.  
Catherine was such an interesting character to read about.  The world that the author gave us was breathtaking.  I really loved seeing the glimpse into Catherine's life as I cried, laughed, and cheered her on while also trying desperately to help her break down the walls of her illness. 

If your looking for a book to give you hope and courage. Then pre order this one now!!
