goes through when their daughter is suffering from and is ultimately
diagnosed with a mental illness. It takes you day by day through their
raw emotions and fragile feelings, so much so, that you feel as though
you are right there with them, fighting as hard as they were to keep
Linea alive and stable. Their story hits home hard for me, as it is
strikingly similar to my own. Reading Cinda's words was difficult for
me, as I couldn't help but think that those were the same emotions and
fears that my own parents experienced when I was first hospitalized. I
related so strongly to Linea's descriptions of what her mind was
thinking during her darkest times. I would recommend this book to
anyone, not just a family dealing with a family member who has a mental
illness. It provides an insightful education to a normal person on what
someone who lives with a mental illness goes through and how support
from friends and family can mean the difference between life and death.

This book outlines the real struggles that both Linea & Cinda go through. It helps both victims and their parents realize they are not alone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
What Linea goes through just to be "normal" is so scary and enlightening. It is an excellent read for parents that have a child diagnosed with some type of mental disorder. It proves that mental disorders are for real and not just a slang terminology.
It opened my eyes greatly to some of the struggles my own child is going through right now.
Highly recommend this read to anyone experiencing a disorder. Contact the authors by messaging them on facebook. They will respond to you.
A+ in my opinion.

Wonderfully poignant example of the resiliency of the human spirit and love of family
These dual journals, if you will, let you see into the decent into mental illness and you realize it could happen to anyone. Hopefully you would cope with the help of a loving family.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Honest, emotional and refreshing
I have just finished reading this wonderful book. I loved the way it was written and how you feel like you are experiencing this journey with them. It is emotional and even funny at times, in a weird way...but it's really refreshing to read the honesty written on the pages of this book. I think this is a great read for anyone and I think that anyone, young or old, with mild or severe depression or mental illness would find a lot of comfort in this true story.Was this review helpful?
