The Words We Keep by Erin Stewart

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

Publishing Date: March 15, 2022

A beautifully realistic, relatable story about mental health and the healing powers of art–perfect for fans of Girl in Pieces and How it Feels to Float.

It’s been three months since The Night on the Bathroom Floor–when Lily found her older sister Alice hurting herself. Ever since then, Lily has been desperately trying to keep things together, for herself and for her family. But now Alice is coming home from her treatment program and it is becoming harder for Lily to ignore all of the feelings she’s been trying to outrun.

Enter Micah, a new student at school with a past of his own. He was in treatment with Alice and seems determined to get Lily to process not only Alice’s experience, but her own. Because Lily has secrets, too. Compulsions she can’t seem to let go of and thoughts she can’t drown out.

When Lily and Micah embark on an art project for school involving finding poetry in unexpected places, she realizes that it’s the words she’s been swallowing that desperately want to break through.

My Review:

The Words We Keep was an emotional journey for Lily. She in the book has to deal with a lot. After she find her sister almost dying, she must pretend she this prefect daughter. Even if on the inside she feeling like crazy. Lily has thus fear that she might turn into her sister and don’t know how to coop with it. Her folks are hard to talk with and just sweep everything under the rug. Then she bumps into Micah who be able to help her to terms of getting help.

I did liked this book from the beginning to end. You can tell how much Lily was struggling throughout the read. This book have some trigger warnings for some readers so be careful when reading. The cover to the book was a nice touch and is relatable to it. I did enjoyed the chemistry between Micah and Lily. This was a nice read dealing with mental health. I’m thankful for being a part of this blog tour and don’t forget to add it to tbr.
