I am reviewing a copy of Promises to Theresa through BooksGoSocial and Netgalley:

Theresa Jarewski goes from the heights of mania to the crash of depression. Will she ever be able to get off her emotional rollercoaster.

Theresa is a sixteen year old over achiever who wants to get accepted into an Ivy League college and to be the outstanding editor of her high school newspaper. She also wants to capture Michael Janning’s heart, but he’s hiding a dark secret that can upset her world.

Theresa dreams of a happy future are shattered when the girl suffers a devastating depression. Through the support of her family and friends, Theresa must learn how to cope with bipolar disorder during high school through early college.

Promises to Theresa is a compassionate depiction of one young woman’s attempt to overcome a mental illness.

I give Promises to Theresa five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
