Red Tears by Joanna Kenrick


Red TearsI open the box
Inside it is softness and steel

Tissues and blades

Emily Bowyer seems to have it all – lots of friends, loving family and good grades. But beneath the surface lies a wretched secret.

Life isn’t as much fun as it would appear. Emily’s friends are going off her, her family is having problems, and there’s the constant mountain of homework. The pressure to excel. To be perfect.

Tension, anxiety, anger, self-hatred. Where does it go when no one will listen? Emily has found a way to let it all out, a way to cope when life is overwhelming. But it is private. No one must ever find out . . .

  1. This blog is going to run me dry. Too many good books for me to read, and since I live in the U.S., I can’t find many of them at my library! Stop being such a good resource for YA readers. Just stop it.

    (Just kidding, never stop this, this is fabulous!)
