The other book
I couldn't remember is Black Box, a YA story from the perspective of a girl whose sister is hospitalized for depression. It's a very interesting look at the guilt, the need to "fix," and the way mental illness can shatter a family. The protaganist, ultimately learns that she herself has to survive and have a life. Good read. Not my fav YA lately, but thought-provoking.
