Somewhere Only We Know Author: Cheyanne Young Giveaway & Excerpt

Title: Somewhere Only We Know
Author: Cheyanne Young
Publisher: 336Love
Date of Publication: June 15, 2014
Genre: YA romance


Sadie Bradford’s life is one anxiety attack after another. All she wants is to escape life's realities for the summer and hang out with her best friend Aaron. But her grandmother has other plans: Sadie will get a job. Sadie will do volunteer work. Sadie will make new friends - friends without brain injuries that make them forget everything...friends that aren’t Aaron.

While Sadie struggles to survive her anxiety with all these new changes, she finds an escape when she dreams herself into the beautiful world of Isola Fiona. It’s a place that cures memory loss and anxiety. It’s a place where she and Aaron can fall in love. 

But after dragging Aaron along with her to her dream world, things take a turn. Every time they return home, Sadie’s anxiety is a little better but Aaron’s memory is still gone. And Isola Fiona may not be much of a dream after all. As Sadie realizes that Isola Fiona is as real as her anxiety, she rushes to change the course of fate and make things right, but she may be too late...


It’s the same thing every morning. Thirty seconds of bliss between the waking up and the realization. Thirty entire seconds of being a normal sixteen-year-old. Thirty billion, blissful, amazing nanoseconds with no fu**ing anxiety.
And then the feeling falls over me like a lead blanket thrown from the sky. Not slow, like the dread that builds gradually as you flip through your binder, realizing with each empty folder that you forgot your research paper on the kitchen counter back at home. Nope, it doesn’t happen like that.
It slams into my body, full force into every cell of my skin, not caring that my shoulders are still sunburned, as I lie paralyzed in bed. The white blobs in the ceiling morph into blurred ghosts while all I can do is watch. And I am so completely alone.
With as much control as I can manage, my fingers slip from under the safety of my comforter and feel around on the nightstand. Shaking a pill into my palm, I toss my head back and swallow it with a sip from the pink cup next to my bed. I blanch at the taste of stale water, left over from last night. Soon the anxiety will wane. It never goes away, but it wanes. It’s the little things in life, or some cr*p like that.
So I get out of bed.
And I throw on some clothes.
And I stare into the mirror, telling myself I’ll get through another day. Because even when my thoughts are static TV channels and my hands are trembling and I feel like today is the day I will finally drop dead—I know that I won’t. Because I never do. That comforts me a little.
Only four more days until Aaron gets home.
