really liked it

I read this quite some years ago, so my memory is limited. However, I remember loving the way she talks about the definition of her "mental disorder"; saying that it sounds like a lot of people she knows, and that if a man had the same traits, it certainly wouldn't be called a disorder.

Yet she is institutionalized for these vague "symptoms".

I thought it was a very good look at mental health, from someone who went down that road.

Chris Tusa Noticed you liked Girl Interrupted, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed young girl's mental illness and also a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
