Read from January 19 to 25, 2011

I bet this was a hard book to write, and I'm really glad Ms. Sholl did it. She tells a moving, compassionate tale of how disease impacts the entire family. I don't think I've read anything that does such a good job of describing first-hand the combination of frustration and sympathy one feels while dancing around someone trapped under mental illness (or tons of clutter).

Kingpin Thanks! I am sure we can all learn for this - there is a hoarder in all of us - though some more than others!
