BUILD YOUR CITY ON FLESH & BONE - February 9, 2018
by Kat Blucker
Twelve days ago, 20-year-old college student Alexis Cavanaugh tried to kill herself. Now, after being released from an inpatient psychiatric hospital, she's coming home.
On the outside, Ally is the girl with everything: a cross-country scholarship, good grades, plenty of friends. But as her mom and dad struggle to re-establish a sense of normalcy, and her brother grapples with being crowded out, Ally fights the inner shame and blame that landed her back home in the first place.
Build Your City on Flesh and Bone explores the complicated web of circumstances and pressures that cause so many young women to feel perpetually overwhelmed and undervalued. And by probing the depths of human emotion and experience, it examines what makes life worth living, and how our relationships can be our scaffolding—or aftershocks that rock our foundation long after an initial disturbance.
