How It Feels to Float by Helen Fox is such an important read, especially for teenagers who are suffering from mental health disorders, such as depression. As a former middle school and high school teacher, and parent, I am so happy to see books like this one becoming more and more prevalent. This is a story that will break your heart, but Fox will gradually work on putting it back together at the end. I will have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the way she handled the hard topics in this book. Whenever I see a book dealing with such heavy topics, I never know how the author is going to approach it. The fictional account that was all too real was handled with poise and tact, which I really appreciate it. This is a must read!
