I really enjoyed reading How it Feels to Float by Helena Fox, this novel offers a stunning and heart breaking look into living with mental illness and dealing with loss and grief. This was an exceptional debut novel and I cant wait to read more from this author in the future. This impossible to put down novel follows a teenage main character named Biz, as she struggles to come to terms with the loss of her father while also dealing with mental illness and questioning her sexuality. There is so amazing representation in this novel and the subject of mental health was handled beautifully. The writing style was very unique being both flowery and poetic while also feeling so incredibly raw and real.
