it was amazing

This genuine account of life as a schizophrenic was very touching. While Lori Schiller suffers from it, she takes readers through her experience with the use of intense dialog, vivid visuals and voices, and perspectives of others such as her parents and friend. To read others accounts was one of the best things in this book. To hear a schizo's story from themselves and no one else could possibly create a sense of doubt in readers since you wouldn't know what mind state the author was in at the time of writing. However, Lori Schiller fixed this problem by including her parents and friend's outlook and experience on Lori's illness. This was very creative and memorable. This tactic was perfect for such a dark story.
