it was amazing
Read from August 20 to 21, 2012

This book was so good - but so awful - and only because of the heartache these parents had to endure. I literally couldn't put it down . . .I was so caught up in this real-life nightmare, and when I finished, I hugged my daughter a little tighter.

What would you do if your child was schizophrenic? For the Schofields, it was a long descent into hell before they finally found answers - and Jani's battle continues today.

Schofield has an amazing ability to tell a story - you won't want to look away. This book will give you a whole new perspective on life, your children - and what it means to literally take things "one day at a time."
