The Sound of Letting GoThe Sound of Letting Go
by: Stasia Ward Kehoe

For sixteen years, Daisy has been good. A good daughter, helping out with her autistic younger brother uncomplainingly. A good friend, even when her best friend makes her feel like a third wheel. When her parents announce they’re sending her brother to an institution—without consulting her—Daisy’s furious, and decides the best way to be a good sister is to start being bad. She quits jazz band and orchestra, slacks in school, and falls for bad-boy Dave. 

But one person won’t let Daisy forget who she used to be: Irish exchange student and brilliant musician Cal. Does she want the bad boy or the prodigy? Should she side with her parents or protect her brother? How can she know when to hold on and when—and how—to let go? (via Goodreads)                                                                                                                                                                                    

I'm a sucker for stories with psychological disorders. It's one of the things that most people don't know how to handle that's why I want to see a lot of perspectives. I'm so curious whether Daisy will let her brother go or not!

Adding this! I also love novels with characters with psychological disorders (my brother's diagnosed with autism and verbal apraxia) so I know how it feels and I can so relate. Thanks for putting this on my radar, Nina!

This book looks super good! I love reading novels that have characters with different disorders/disabilities. Many people don't realize the impact they have on the family and friends so it's nice to have that perspective.

I'm glad I'm not the only lover of this kind! How's your brother doing right now? :D Hope he's super fine! You're welcome, Dianne! I'm so excited to read this.

I'm glad you're interested in this one too! I know!!!! And it's sad that some people don't really know that there's more to it than just the disorder/disability itself! :(

Love the sound of all the interesting elements in the book -- autism, teen rebellion…. and an Irish exchange student.

I think this sounds wonderful! I love intriguing sibling relationships and I think this one has so much potential. Plus, the romance sounds somehow complicated and simple at the same time.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
And hi, hon! I hope you're well. The summer heat is keeping me away from my laptop, but I'll be back full time soon enough.

Nina Waters said...

No biggie! :D Thanks for dropping by.

You're welcome! I really hope this is a great read!

I'm well! Hope you're enjoying the summer. ;)

A lot of people (unfortunately) only see the immediate impact on the person affected, not the impact on those around them. This goes for disabilities, disorders, addictions, etc. That's one thing I love about books-they introduce people to new ideas and concepts they may not have realized before.
