Read full description of the books Hold Still:An arresting story about starting over after a friend's suicide, froma breakthrough new voice in YA fiction
Dear Caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can't.
Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend's suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn't die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid's descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid - and Caitlin herself

Of Hold Still, Nina says:
“This book is about loss, and it’s also about art. The loss part comes from a classmate’s suicide. I didn’t know him well, but learning of his death remains one of the most profoundly sad and confusing events of my teenage years. The art part comes from my mother, a high school photography teacher. A girl in one of her student’s photographs inspired the character of Ingrid. While I was writing, I learned how to develop and print black-and-white photographs in a darkroom.”
Nina lives in Oakland, California with her wife and their two cute cats. Visit her online at www.ninalacour.com.
