When Reason Breaks
Author: Cindy L. Rodriguez
Pages: 304
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Synopsis via Goodreads:
13 Reasons Why meets the poetry of Emily Dickinson in this gripping debut novel perfect for fans of Sara Zarr or Jennifer Brown.

A Goth girl with an attitude problem, Elizabeth Davis must learn to control her anger before it destroys her. Emily Delgado appears to be a smart, sweet girl, with a normal life, but as depression clutches at her, she struggles to feel normal. Both girls are in Ms. Diaz’s English class, where they connect to the words of Emily Dickinson. Both are hovering on the edge of an emotional precipice. One of them will attempt suicide. And with Dickinson’s poetry as their guide, both girls must conquer their personal demons to ever be happy.

In an emotionally taut novel with a richly diverse cast of characters, readers will relish in the poetry of Emily Dickinson and be completely swept up in the turmoil of two girls grappling with demons beyond their control.


  1. I love Emily Dickinson. Sounds like a very interesting book. My WoW is from
    Housewitch by Katie Schickel

  2. Hmmm, I've not heard of this one. Contemporary isn't really my thing, unfortunately. I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy holidays :)
