Recommends it for: Anyone who is touched with mental illness
I finished this awesome book about a family dealing with bipolar illness. I personally am touched by this and finally get a glimpse into what a family goes through with the illness. I would have given it 10+ stars if I could! I think everyone WITH bipolar and their family BOTH read this informative narrative on the trials and tribulations of Karla Smith and her family!
