really liked it
Read in February, 2009

Dora is a teenager suffering from severe depression. Elena is her younger sister. The Black Box tells the story of the effects of Dora's illness on her family, especially her sister Elena. It really hits the nail on the head when it comes to dealing with the emotions a family may go through when dealing with mental illness.

Powerful and compelling. This is a short novel but is packed full of emotional content. Ms. Schumacher is an exellent writer and has handled the sensitive subject of teenage mental illness in a very caring way.
