In my opinion, How It Feels to Float is probably one of the most underrated novels released this past spring. I haven’t read such a universal novel in a very long time. It’s potent, touching and had me glued to it page after page. Biz Martin Grey knows how to float through life. Survive, despite her dark thoughts and inescapable sadness. Biz lost her father when she was 7 years old. She is now a teenager and still sees her father every day even though she lost him all those years ago. Then after one night on a beach, her dad disappears and she can no longer see him no matter what she does. What follows is Biz’s journey as she tries to find her dad and come to terms with his death as well as her own depression and mental illness. Biz is such a touching character—everyone who has suffered through any type of difficult time in their life will be able to see some semblance of themselves in her. If you’re in the mood for a hopeful, touching novel, this one is for you.
