Weekend Book Giveaway: The Memory of Light

This week we have a serious new book by Francisco X. Stork, author of by Marcelo in the Real World, called The Memory of Light.


From the publisher:

When Vicky Cruz wakes up in the Lakeview Hospital Mental Disorders ward, she knows one thing: She can’t even commit suicide right. But for once, a mistake works out well for her, as she meets Mona, the live wire; Gabriel, the saint; E.M., always angry; and Dr. Desai, a quiet force. With stories and honesty, kindness and hard work, they push her to reconsider her life before Lakeview, and offer her an acceptance she’s never had. But Vicky’s newfound peace is as fragile as the roses that grow around the hospital. And when a crisis forces the group to split up, sending her back to the life that drove her to suicide, Vicky must try to find the strength to carry on. She may not have it. She doesn’t know. Inspired in part by the author’s own experience with depression, The Memory of Light is the rare young adult novel that focuses not on the events leading up to a suicide attempt, but the recovery from one — about living when life doesn’t seem worth it, and how we go on anyway.

Heavy stuff, right? But if you have read Stork’s work before, you know this is going to be wonderful. For your chance to beat the waiting list and win an advanced readers copy, tell me about one of the things that makes your life worth living.
