    Absolutely amazing and I'm not surprised with the quality that Dodie released with this book. Even for somebody who doesn't go through this exactly it feels nice to be able to relate and finally understand such hardships.

    Very relatable in the beginning, at least for me as I read about the loss of her grandmother. It wasn’t the loss f my grandmother, but it was the loss of someone so important to me at 16, and especially my mom. I can’t even begin to think of what all the other chapters are going to be like, but I will say the opening was brilliant and I’m glad that was the opening and not cliche or made up to sound more “thrilling” than it was. You’re freaking amazing Dodie. ?

    Secrets For The Made written by Dodie Clark contains Ms. Clarks’s truths and shares her heart in the midst of her struggle with Depersonalization Disorder. Her learned life lessons about sex, drinking, love, heartbreak, bullying and friendship are depicted through, lyrics, photography, doodles and poignant humor. Secrets For The Mad is a sad, funny heartbreaking and honest book. If you love Dodie on YouTube and Instagram as @doddleoddle then you will love this book. What makes this book different than other mental health memoirs/autobiographies is the fact that Dodie can tell her truths all the while making you feel as if you are in her inner circle; that you are kindred spirits; that she is sitting across the table from you while you are having lunch together. Not everyone can capture an audience like Dodie can. I especially loved her advice to young girls about Self Identity, Sexual relationships, Sexual Harassment and how to be precautious when it comes to having sex. The topics are relevant, helpful and all told in an educational, yet lighthearted way. This reviewer will even be using some of Dodie’s advice when it comes time to talk to her own daughter about sex and boys. The advice is laid out simply, and covers all the bases. As I mom I appreciate her desire to help younger women who look up to her as a role model in a loveing, productive and sincere way. Music and Poetry may be Dodie’s passion and the outlet for her many struggles and feelings, however her writing is as exceptional as her music. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I received this book from Atria Books via Netgalley for my honest review. I give Secrets For The Mad 4 stars.
