On My Wishlist is: A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler

Blurb from Amazon:
Fifteen-year-old Aura Ambrose has been hiding a secret. Her mother, a talented artist and art teacher, is slowly being consumed by schizophrenia, and Aura has been her sole caretaker ever since Aura’s dad left them. Convinced that “creative” equals crazy, Aura shuns her own artistic talent. But as her mother sinks deeper into the darkness of mental illness, the hunger for a creative outlet draws Aura toward the depths of her imagination. Just as desperation threatens to swallow her whole, Aura discovers that art, love, and family are profoundly linked—and together may offer an escape from her fears.

OMG, this sound amazing. It walks the fine line of being insane and being creativity. I really want to get my hands on this book. Plus, the cover is amazing. I love the drowning girl or re-surfacing girl (depending on your view).

  1. I read this book, and totally loved it. It made me really think about what it would be like to have somebody near me have schizophrenia, and my heart just broke. It’s an awesome book!
