This was one of the best books I have read in a very long time. Erica is also one of my favorite writers as well. I strongly recommend picking this up.

good read. It was different and dealt with a subject not really spoke about much in many Black communities-mental illness. I am glad that I read this book.

A decent enough story about how a family copes with the effects of schizophrenia. However, I found myself irritated with the male characters. They should have been kicked to the curb a long time ago.

I would have preferred a more in-depth journey into the disease.

It was really good. The beginning was a little boring but once you get into it, it is really good.
