The words we keep / Erin Stewart.


Three months ago Lily found her older sister Alice hurting herself. She has been desperately trying to keep things together, for herself and for her family. But now Alice is coming home from her treatment program and it is becoming harder for Lily to ignore her own feelings of anxiety. Micah, a new student at school, was in treatment with Alice and seems determined to get Lily to process not only Alice's experience, but her own. When Lily and Micah embark on an art project for school involving finding poetry in unexpected places, she realizes that it's the words she's been swallowing that desperately want to break through. - adapted from jacket
