Her family moves, hoping the new location will help.  But the panic attacks persist to the point that staff in the emergency room are beginning to know her by name.  As her situation worsens, she is institutionalized.

Kaylee, "The What If?" Game is a powerful novel addressing issues relevant with youth suffering from anxiety and depression.  Author Christine Dzidrums has approached a sensitive topic with insightful tenacity.  This book is sure to resonate with youth who are trying to cope with feelings of hopelessness.
