's review

really liked it

This is most definitely kind of a funny story. It also has a few deeply moving moments. Because of the author's personal experience in a psychiatric hospital, the descriptions there are vivid and real. The MC's voice reads as older, but it's an important story. Great for teens dealing with depression or for these who have friends or family with a mental illness. Written with humor, warmth, and compassion for the Human Beings that we are.
