Schizo
The fascinating, shocking, and ultimately quite hopeful story of one teen’s downward spiral into mental illness by the bestselling author of Tweak and son of David Sheff (author of Beautiful Boy, the memoir adapted into a movie of the same name starring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet). Miles is the ultimate unreliable narrator—a teen recovering from a schizophrenic breakdown who believes he is getting better . . . when in reality he is growing worse. Driven to the point of obsession to find his missing younger brother, Teddy, and wrapped up in a romance that may or may not be the real thing, Miles is forever chasing shadows. As Miles feels his world closing around him, he struggles to keep it open, but what you think you know about his world is actually a blur of gray, and the sharp focus of reality proves startling. Written by Nic Sheff, son of David Sheff (author of Beautiful Boy, the memoir adapted into a movie of the same name starring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet), Schizo is the fascinating, and ultimately quite hopeful, story of one teen''s downward spiral into mental illness as he chases the clues to a missing brother. Perfect for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and It’s Kind of a Funny Story. “This spare book is a well-written, but painful, read, as readers come to understand the hopelessness Miles feels about his life and his future.”—VOYA “In his first novel, memoirist Sheff (Tweak) provides an insightful perspective on one teen’s struggle with mental illness.”—Publishers Weekly

Harmony House

Harmony House
En Playa Paraíso algo está mal. El padre de Jen cree que mudarse a Harmony House es la mejor manera de seguir adelante luego de la muerte de su esposa. Pero todos los que han vivido allí saben lo que se oculta detrás de sus muros. Todos conocen el poder de la casa y saben que el pasado puede tocarte la puerta cuando menos lo esperas. Jen debe encontrar la forma de escapar antes de que sea demasiado tarde. Antes de que el pasado la atrape. "Sheff escribió una historia de suspenso bien lograda que evoca los clásicos, tanto El resplandor de Stephen King como The Haunting of Hill House de Shirley Jackson. Una novela sólida y aterradora acerca de lo sobrenatural". Kirkus Reviews
