The Words We Keep

Stewart, E.
Lily is a talented writer and a perfectionist, but she is hiding an anxiety disorder she struggles with on top of the anxiety she harbours about her older sister Alice’s suicide attempt. Readers are invited to glimpse into Lily’s mind, revealing the struggles of someone trying to cope with undiagnosed anxiety and depression, an issue many young adults may have experience with. In a senior secondary classroom, the novel lends itself to literature circles or as an independent reading choice, and it may be of particular interest to students interested in sensitive subject matter such as mental health and suicide.
