10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac

Maeve has heard it all before. She's been struggling with severe anxiety for a long time, and as much as she wishes it was something she could just talk herself out of, it's not. She constantly imagines the worst, composes obituaries in her head, and is always ready for things to fall apart. To add to her troubles, her mom--the only one who really gets what Maeve goes through--is leaving to work in Haiti for six months, so Maeve will be sent to Vancouver to live with her dad.

Vancouver comes with a slew of new worries, but Maeve finds brief moments of calm (as well as even more worries) with Salix, a local girl who doesn't seem to worry about anything. Between her dad's wavering sobriety, her very pregnant stepmom insisting on a home birth, and her bumbling courtship with Salix, this summer brings more catastrophes than even Maeve could ever have foreseen. Will she be able to find focus through all the chaos to be there for the people she loves?

Update: Celeste H. is our winner this time!
