A Blue So Dark
By: Holly Schindler
Pub date: May 1st, 2010
Terrified that her mother, a schizophrenic and an artist, is a mirror that reflects her own future, sixteen-year-old Aura struggles with her overwhelming desires to both chase artistic pursuits and keep madness at bay.
As her mother sinks deeper into the darkness of mental illness, the hunger for a creative outlet keeps drawing Aura toward the depths of her own imagination—the shadows of make-believe that she finds frighteningly similar to her mother’s hallucinations.
Convinced that creative equals crazy, Aura shuns her art, and her life unravels in the process.

Not only is this cover hautingly gorgeous but the description provided sounds beyond intriguing. A Blue So Dark sounds like a very character driven novel which I love.
