Synopsis from TLC Book Tours

In the year since her husband died, Laura Klein’s world has shifted on its axis. It’s not just that she’s raising two children alone—fact is, Laura always did the parenting for both of them. But now her fifteen-year-old daughter, Darcy, is dating a boy with a fast car and faster hands, and thirteen-year-old Troy’s attitude has plummeted along with his voice. Just when she’s resigning herself to a life of worry and selfless support, her charismatic new tenant offers what Laura least expects: a second chance.
Darcy isn’t surprised her mom doesn’t understand her, though she never imagined her suddenly acting like a love-struck teen herself. With Troy starting to show signs of their father’s bipolar disorder, and her best friend increasingly secretive, Darcy turns to her new boyfriend, Nick, for support. Yet Nick has a troubled side of his own, forcing Darcy toward life-altering choices.
Exploring the effects of grief on both mother and daughter, Equilibrium is a thoughtful, resolutely uplifting novel about finding the balance between holding on and letting go, between knowing when to mourn and when to hope, and between the love we seek and the love we choose to give.

Why I am waiting....
The cover! LOL! And also the fact that the story sounds like one that will keep me turning the pages.


  1. That is a great cover, and it's an interesting twist to have a book show both the parent's and the child's perspective. Great pick!


  2. I like to read books with this kind of plot. Thanks for sharing. I'll keep my eye out for this one. I'm also now following you.

  3. It would be interesting to see how a mother and daughter each handle the same kind of tragedy. Great pick and thanks for stopping by!
