Publisher's Summary

From the author of Parallel and Free to Fall comes a novel about how it feels to be broken and what means to be real.

Seventeen-year-old Jessa Gray has always felt broken inside, but she's gotten very good at hiding it. No one at school knows about the panic attacks, the therapy that didn't help, the anxiety meds that haven't worked. But when a severe accident leaves her with a brain injury and noticeable scars, Jessa's efforts to convince the world that she's okay finally crumble - now she looks as shattered as she feels. Fleeing from her old life in Los Angeles, Jessa moves to Colorado to live with her dad, but things go from bad to worse when she realizes she's seeing bruises and scars on the people around her that no one else can see. She blames it on the accident, but as her body heals and the hallucinations continue, Jessa wonders if what she's seeing could somehow have a deeper meaning. In her quest for answers, she falls for Marshall, a boy with a heart defect whose kindness and generous spirit slowly draw Jessa out of her walled-off shell and into the broken, beautiful, real world - a place where souls get hurt just as badly as bodies, and we all need each other to heal.

All Things New is a love story about perception and truth, physical and emotional pain, and the messy, complicated people we are behind the masks we put on for the world, perfect for fans of All the Bright Places and The Fault in Our Stars.

    Story
    "Loved every uncomfortable minute"
    Any additional comments?

    This listen was uncomfortable. Not in a good or bad way but it was so well-written and performed that I felt every bit of the mental anguish of the main character, Jessa. I found myself just hoping upon hope that she would just 'snap out of it.' Mental health is more complicated than that, of course, so the time spent in Jessa's world was disconcerting, in a "Bell Jar" kinda way.

    I absolutely loved the narration! This content could have easily been ill-perceived but Rachel Jacobs was excellent at creating Jessa's anxiety and her attempts at clarity. I even got my own heart palpitations as things got intense. Now THAT's great narration!!

    The ending was interesting. I liked the infusion of faith into the discussion. (I was really hoping there was a return of Jessa to LA to confront Wren but whatev.)

    All in all, I loved every minute of this very uncomfortable listen.

    "All Things New"

    All Things New
    : Lauren Miller

    This is a new to me author, but will not be a last read. A YA novel that deals with anxiety disorder along with physical brokenness. Jessa survives a terrible auto crash, but her life becomes even more complicated than before. She deals with family. friendships, love and romance while trying to discovery where she fits and what she believes. This is a listen for all YA and adults.


    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Rachel Jacobs gave emotion to this novel. She took me from smiles to tears and back more than once.



    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Story
    "Enthralling and powerful!"

    Fiction is at its best when it takes the intangibles of life and puts them in a context where we can see them. Miller accomplishes that in this fantastic YA novel. Dramatic while fun to read; it's an absolute must-listen!

    ALL THINGS NEW is a story for anyone who's known someone with anxiety disorder (or really, a story for EVERYONE, because we could all benefit from understanding more of that experience).
