I haven’t left my house in over a year. My doctor says it’s social anxiety, but I know the only things that are safe are made of paper. My room is paper. My world is paper. Everything outside is fire. All it would take is one spark for me to burst into flames. So I stay inside. Where nothing can touch me.
Then my mom hires a tutor. Jackson. This boy I had a crush on before the world became too terrifying to live in. Jackson’s life is the complete opposite of mine, and I can tell he’s got secrets of his own. But he makes me feel things. Makes me want to try again. Makes me want to be brave. I can almost taste the outside world. But so many things could go wrong, and all it takes is one spark for everything I love to disappear…
I was so intrigued by this book. I enjoyed the story it told and the characters in it. It deals with mental health issues and homelessness.
I did like Zoe in the book. I can relate to her anxiety issues. I love how in the book she is very creative with paper art. She tries her best to make everyone happy. A chance meeting with Jackson, as he starts helping her tutor. Will he be able to turn things around for Zoe?
I do love Jackson in the book also. He is very caring person. Even when he has his own problems, he only cares about Zoe. Jackson is close off in the book and refuse to get help for himself. When he starts to tutor Zoe, he opens up a a bit on his life. Will Zoe be able to help him?
Paper Girl deal with issues of panic attacks.
If you into with books about mental health than you might liked this read. It came out recently today. I did love the cover of this book also. It fits the theme of the book.
