I thought this book was really good. I do recommend this book to anyone who is interested in helping people out or just anyone. It really discribes how hectic her life was. It shows you how a person with schizophrenia actually is. She tells her life day to day and how she gets through it. The book doesn't really take that long to read. It does tell a lot in a small book, but it's good. So, I think it is a good book. It tells how busy her life really anyone who has schizophrenia. After you read this, you will know how different their lives are.

Schizophrenia from a first person perspective, although no book can accurately convey the true FEELING of the disease, helps to give an idea of the immensity of what's affected. This book is deeply moving, the isolation this person went through is heartbreaking. It helps to shed light on what the disorder is: It is a radical change in perception of self and enviroment, the 'symptoms' are simply that person trying to deal with this alteration. And in trying to deal, they give themselves away in the extreme difficulty of maintaining control.
