The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter
Publication Date: 15 March 2016
Amazon | The Book Depository | Dymocks Australia
The beautiful struggle of a girl
desperate for the one relationship that has caused her the most pain
Cassie O'Malley has spent the past two and a half
years in a mental institution—dumped there by her mother, against her
will. Now, at 18, Cassie emancipates herself, determined to start over.
She attends college, forms new friendships, and even attempts to start
fresh with her mother. But before long, their unhealthy relationship
threatens to pull Cassie under once again. As Cassie struggles to
reclaim her life, childhood memories persist and confuse, and Cassie
must consider whose version of history is real, and more important,
whose life she must save.
A bold, literary story about the fragile complexities of mothers and daughters and learning to love oneself, The First Time She Drowned reminds us that we must dive deep into our pasts if we are ever to move forward. (summary from Goodreads)
This one has a lot of great praise and I'm really looking forward to it. Apparently it has lyrical prose and is for fans of contemporary, and that screams me! Plus look at that cover. Beautiful!
