Before My Eyes -"Gripping" "Thought-Provoking"

"The thought-provoking story broaches such topics as recognizing signs of mental illness, caring for the mentally ill, gun control and the difficulties of each. While Bock doesn’t provide answers, she offers a rich opportunity to start a dialogue on these issues that continue to plague America." -- Bookpages review, February, 2014. "Bock’s story unfolds as an hour-by-hour account of the Labor Day weekend before Claire and Max’s senior year, told in three alternating points of view. Bock’s prose is fluid and resonant, and her characters fully realistic,... A sense of dread and the threat of violence hang over this gripping novel (the book opens with Barkley pulling out a gun at a campaign event for Max’s father), as do the failings of parents, friends, and society." — Publishers Weekly BEFORE MY EYES is a serious book about serious topics told as humanly and with as much as care as I could muster as a writer. Thank you for considering BEFORE MY EYES for your mature teens and for adults of all ages -- Caroline Bock
