Review: This book was one of the best books I’ve read this year. It just felt so real. I feel like there aren’t really any books that discuss mental illness in a realistic way. This book delved into the struggles that teenagers deal with, with friends and family and society. It really add you feel for the characters, you wanted to see them beat their problems and their illness. It takes you on the roller coaster that is bipolar disorder and you can’t help but care. This book was beautiful and heartbreaking.
Recommendation: I might have to call it one of the best young adult book I’ve ever read. It was real and honest. I highly recommend it.
