Against Her Will | Spotlight

Spotlight is a feature in which I help you add to your TBR list by teaming up with authors to show you all their amazing books! That Girl With Books rarely takes part in book-blitzs or blog-tours (unless an author asks us to), we prefer teaming up with authors so we don't just show you the books that all the other blogs are showing you!

Announcement! 
This month I have teamed up with Jo Schaffer. Her book ''Against Her Will'' will be coming out on March 30. (Pre-order here!)
In these three weeks leading up to the release I will be sharing with you: an exclusive excerpt and an interview with the author! Sound good? Keep reading!
The excerpt will be up on 16/3/15 and the interview on 23/3/15


''Against Her Will'' covers a lot of very important topics surrounding mental health, you can click here to read a Post Jo Schaffer wrote about it. I think these topics topics will make it an interesting, but also very important, book to read. Even if mental illnesses are not something affecting you directly, it is still really important to be aware of them, and I think reading a book about something is the best way to gain a basic understanding of it.

Now some more about the book.....
Isn't it beautiful? Personally, this cover definitely catches my attention and I can honestly say I'm super intrigued. I love what they did with the title, and the colours just work so perfectly! Intrigued yet? I thought so....


Synopsis:
A YA novel BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS
My name is Cassidy Connor and my parents hate me. Well, they can go to hell. After yet another fight with my manipulative lawyer father and bible thumping mother, I disappear onto Hollywood Blvd among the other street kids. Or so I thought. The cops pick me up for a BS crime I didn't commit, and Dad announces the only way I can avoid charges is to voluntarily admit myself into Oak Dale, a psych ward for crazy teens. I don t belong there my parents are the real nutjobs but it s not like I have a choice.

At Oak Dale, everyone is going on about the kid who just killed himself trying to escape. How could they dump me in a place like this? I'm thrown in with my anorexic roommate, Erin; foster care system victim, Gina; and pyromaniac Tony. Guess he likes to light em up. All of us are unwanted baggage, here against our will. I quickly learn only the strong survive Oak Dale and some of us won t make it out alive.
