One Carefree Day
Our reality is a mixture of the loves we encounter.
What I loved about #OneCarefreeDay was @whitneyamazeen’s ability to convey Willow’s journey with her OCD and voyaging into her inner voice as she processes the world around her. This #ownvoices work brought forth mental health representation that are much needed for YA readers. While some topics might be a bit difficult, this is an important read that inspires empathy and immersion into real world topics.
Today I’m excited to participate in the Bookstagram & Creative Tour for One Carefree Day by Whitney Amazeen hosted by MTMC Tours! In this YA Contemporary Romance with #OwnVoices OCD rep, Willow Bates must manage her obsessive-compulsive disorder before she loses her home. What she doesn’t expect? Finding love in the process. One Carefree Day releases on February 7th 2021 from Swan Pages Publishing!

Imagine being forced to face your worst fear.
For eighteen-year-old Willow Bates, anxiety is just a part of life. With her every decision ruled by intrusive thoughts, she's worried she sometimes seems a little odd. Despite Willow's efforts to hide her OCD from those around her, it isn't always possible. Her rituals are her coping mechanism, and Willow's past has left her with a lot to cope with.
But when Willow takes things too far, her mother breaks and gives her an ultimatum: Willow must finally start taking meds to treat her obsessive-compulsive disorder, or she'll have to move out within three months. But Willow is terrified of both options, and can't afford to support herself as a new cosmetology student.
Only when Theo Tate moves in next door does Willow begin to see hope. Theo might have a way for Willow to avoid taking meds and still resist her rituals. But falling for Theo is definitely not part of the plan. And mingling with him has risks not even Willow could possibly control, let alone be prepared for.
About Whitney Amazeen:
Whitney Amazeen's love for reading started in third grade and has been going strong ever since. As a result, Whitney has evolved into a full-fledged daydreamer with more stories in her head than she can count. When she's not immersed in a novel, Whitney spends the majority of her time writing down stories about characters in her head who demand to be heard. Whitney lives in California with her husband and son, and can often be found drinking tea, hoping for foggy weather, and obsessing over fictional characters.
