Dreaming of Antigone

Author: Robin Bridges
Publisher: Kensington
Release Date: March 29, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Heartfelt and emotional." --Rebecca Phillips, author of Faking Perfect

"I can't ever be the blazing star that Iris was. I'm still just a cold, dark satellite orbiting a star that went super nova." 

Andria's twin sister, Iris, had adoring friends, a cool boyfriend, a wicked car, and a shelf full of soccer trophies. She had everything, in fact--including a drug problem. Six months after Iris's death, Andria is trying to keep her grades, her friends, and her family from falling apart. But stargazing and books aren't enough to ward off her guilt that she--the freak with the scary illness and all-black wardrobe--is still here when Iris isn't. And then there's Alex Hammond. The boy Andria blames for Iris's death. The boy she's unwittingly started swapping lines of poetry and secrets with, even as she tries to keep hating him. 

Heartwrenching, smart, and bold, Dreaming of Antigone is a story about the jagged pieces that lie beneath the surface of the most seemingly perfect life…and how they can fit together to make something wholly unexpected.

Why I'm excited:
I don't know why, but I am SO drawn to books that have stars on the cover. I just love them. This sounds kind of heavy, but I've found myself drawn to "issue" books more and more. While I'm sure there will be some sad parts, it sounds important and hopeful, too. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for this one.

  2. This one does sound a little more serious and emotional, but unfortunately, I bet many people can relate to it. Thanks for putting this one on my radar. Great pick!

  3. Oh wow this sounds like it's going to break my heart. But I want to read it anyways, so it's definitely going on my TBR pile. Great pick!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
