really liked it

This book was amazing. And annoying. With good reason...the author describes her various mental states from childhood to adulthood, which is a dizzying ride. It's amazing in that she can tap into all of her mania, her depression, her anorexia and bulimia...the list goes on and on. If you're trying to understand what it is like to be borderline, this is an excellent book to read. But you'd better buckle your seatbelt! Pershall's writing is lyrical and brutal all at the same time. I may rethnk my 4-star rating when I revisit this book in a few months. Definitely a must-read.
