I can’t weep. I can’t fear. I’ve grown talented at pretending.

Elizabeth Caldwell doesn’t feel emotions . . . she sees them. Longing, Shame, and Courage materialize around her classmates. Fury and Resentment appear in her dysfunctional home. They’ve all given up on Elizabeth because she doesn’t succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one—Fear. He’s intrigued by her, as desperate to understand the accident that changed Elizabeth’s life as she is herself.

Elizabeth and Fear both sense that the key to her past is hidden in the dream paintings she hides in the family barn. But a shadowy menace has begun to stalk her, and try as she might, Elizabeth can barely avoid the brutality of her life long enough to uncover the truth about herself. When it matters most, will she be able to rely on Fear to save her?
To be honest, the cover and me didn't have a spark, but that synopsis! Isn't it just fascinating? I want to know more, like who - or what - Fear is!

Guest Post

Name: Longing

A Typical Summons: “What’s the project?” one of my classmates asks. Susie Yank, the tiny girl everyone has labeled nerdy and know-it-all. She’s really just lonely, taking solace in knowledge rather than drowning in her friendless existence. I see Longing standing beside her, touching Susie’s shoulder as the girl glances at Sophia, probably imagining what it would be like to be her best friend.

Physical Traits: Longing is a beautiful Emotion, with long sleek hair and slanted, exotic eyes.

A Little Known Fact (if applicable): Longing enjoys toying with humans.

It seems that Longing is fickle today; instead of touching Joshua’s shoulder, she leans down and presses a long kiss onto his lips.

Quote from SQP: “Poor baby,” she croons to Joshua, addressing me. “You torment him so, dear. Why not give him a chance? I bet he’s delicious.”
To get a glimpse into how Elizabeth may view emotions is utterly captivating. Personally, it's such a mind-boggling thing to wrap my head around, with emotions being personified in this way. Can't wait to pick Some Quiet Place up!
