I love reading about mental dysfunction and for that reason I enjoyed this story. It is the true story of a girl who was held against her will in a mental institution in the 1960s. I don't remember much of the story line, other than her utter conviction that she was not crazy and that was the purpose for writing this memoir. The amusing thing is that it is apparent that she is mentally unstable despite her conviction to the contrary, although not sick enough to be held involuntarily. Therefore her autobiography is counterproductive but interesting.
