Product Description

A shockingly dark, funny, and heartbreaking portrait of a young teenager's clash with mental illness and her battle toward understanding and recovery

Ambitious, talented fourteen-year-old honors student Juliet is poised for success at her Southern California high school. However, she soon finds herself on an increasingly frightening spiral of drug use, self-harm, and mental illness that lands her in a remote therapeutic boarding school, where she must ultimately find the inner strength, and determination, to survive.

This highly anticipated debut—from the writer hailed as "a combination of Denis Johnson and Joan Didion" (Dazed)—brilliantly captures the intimate triumph of a girl's struggle to become the woman she knows she can be.

Reviews/Praise

"Achingly accurate language, stripped down but beautiful, makes this story fresh and forthright."—Library Journal

"Searing... reminiscent of Eve Babitz’s work... Escoria’s novel is a moving and intimate portrait of girlhood and mental illness."—Publishers Weekly

"Vivid, fantastic imaginings... of mental illness and disaffected youth." —Kirkus Starred Review
