Praise for The Words We Keep

A SCHNEIDER FAMILY BOOK AWARD FOR TEENS WINNER!

★ "A sprawling, engrossing read, Stewart's latest succeeds in mapping out the toll of anxiety disorder with scrupulous, cleareyed detail. Above all, however, there's an overpowering sense of hope underlined by an achingly sincere message: Speak up and get help if needed. Indispensably candid."--Kirkus, starred review

★ "An excellent choice."--SLJ, starred review

★ "In Lily's frank, forthcoming voice, Stewart mingles Lily's love of words--blackout poetry, social media posts coining terms that should exist--with specific descriptions of anxiety disorder-related distress that will resonate with many readers."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Wild, beautiful, and free. The Words We Keep is a poetic page turner. A raw, relatable story of mental illness, romance, and the power of love."--Jennifer Niven, #1 New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places

"A gorgeous and deeply touching rumination on the power of art, this book is for anyone who has lost their words and lost their way. The Words We Keep is a tender, heartfelt, and realistic look at mental illness, familial love, and finding your voice."--Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces and You'd Be Home Now

"The Words We Keep is a luminous exploration into the restorative power of love and art. The only thing it contains more of than poetry is raw, unfiltered hope. This book is a healing balm to a wounded heart."--Jeff Zentner, Morris Award-winning author of In the Wild Light
