Without further ado…let me introduce you to…The Art of Feeling by Laura Tims
Published by HarperTeen
Publication Date: August 15th 2017
Perfect for fans of Jennifer Niven’s New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places, this contemporary YA novel explores the friendship between a girl in constant pain and a boy who feels nothing at all.
Since the car accident, Samantha Herring has been in pain, not only from her leg injury, but also from her mother’s death, which has devastated her family. After pushing away her friends, Sam has receded into a fog of depression.
But then Sam meets Eliot, a reckless loner with an attitude and an amazing secret—he can’t feel any pain. At first, Sam is jealous. But then she learns more about his medical condition…and his self-destructive tendencies. In fact, Eliot doesn’t seem to care about anything at all—except maybe Sam. As they grow closer, they begin to confront Sam’s painful memories of the accident—memories that may hold a startling truth about what really happened that day.
I was lucky enough to meet Laura Tims at a book conference over a year ago, and she is one of the sweetest authors that I’ve met! Not only that, but I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with her first book, Please Don’t Tell (my review can be found here). As such, when I heard she was coming out with a new book, I immediately added it to my TBR, because I know it’s going to be absolutely amazing!
Have you read this book? What did you think? If not, is it on your TBR? Let me know in the comments below!
