    What: Talk and signing on First Break


    A very special collaboration between First Break author Jamie Weil, NAMI Redding, and Redding Barnes & Noble to hold a talk from 12:00 - 12:30 on insight into First Break’s journey through youth mental health and suicide prevention and how that story will be used to change the conversation. A book signing will be held following that talk from 12:00-3:00.


    At a time when we are expected to be happy and joyful, the holidays are very difficult for so many people, especially those struggling with mental health challenges. This day is perfect to gather because it is just a few days after heroine Paige’s birthday in the novel, and the novel takes place during this Fall/Winter cycle. The resource guide in the back of the book may provide the exact help a loved one needs.

    JAMIE WEIL at Books Inc. Alameda


    Writer and youth mental health advocate Jamie Weil shares her powerful novel for young adults, First Break.

    When your first break from home is your first break with reality ... Paige Masters knows something isn't quite right, but figures once she gets to college, life will get better. Instead, it gets worse. Desperate to quiet the voices in her head telling her to kill herself, Paige overdoses on her roommate's sleeping meds, her ticket to the university emergency room and, from there, a 72-hour hold at an adolescent psychiatric facility that turns into months that feel like they'll never end. Inside those cotton-candy-pink walls, Paige turns 18, and discovers that adulthood brings a whole new set of rights. When she checks herself out, she is ill-prepared for what comes next.
