really liked it

This is a great read. Although I couldn't relate to it like most that I read it was quite realistic and from the point of view of a mental institution. This is about a girl who gets admitted to a Mental Institution at the age of 18. Throughout the book she tells about her story. The types of patients that reside with her, the security of the facility, and her treatment by the world after she gets admitted. This book is really insightful because the author is writing about herself. She writes about how she after a year in the facility felt safe and happy being imprisoned in the hospital. That the outside world was too " dangerous " for a person like her. Even though through half the book she debates her insanity. She was diagnosed with borderline personality, and in the end she discusses her growth and final acceptance with it.
