If you have a child with mental illness and/or an oppositional disorder, a challenging, talented and charming kid who will stop at nothing to get what he or she desires, then this is the book you MUST read.

I have just finished reading “Diary of a broken Mind” From page 1 I was hooked and was drawn into the world of Anne, Charles and their family abd friends. I watched u tube clips of Charles and Anne and these made me feel like I was inside the book. Anne you are such an open honest Beautuful lady inside and out and this Book blew my mind. Charles you and your mum will help so many others by telling your story. Thank you 🙏✨

This book is beautifully well written and tragically sad. Charles’ lyrics give strong insight into the challenges of living with addiction and mental illness. I cannot fathom the strength it took for Anne Moss to write this book and I am incredibly grateful that both she and her son have shared their stories in hopes of helping others.
