Some people can make fun of YA books (in general) but this book, "How it Feels to Float," is something I had not been expecting (in a good way). There's substance in this young adult novel with themes such as grief, familial love, and mental illness. This future release left me hooked and it really drew me in the story.
Additionally, the writing was good, heartfelt, and sincere. It felt so real to the point that I'd call this a "mood" kind of book. Meaning that you'd read this book and experience all kinds of emotions. Other times, you might read this book and realize that you don't feel like reading it (but that's okay). When you return to it, it feels like reuniting with a friend you're familiar with.
This book was that good.
