A captivating story about mental illness that lingers long beyond the last page, the novel features haunting interior illustrations by Neal Shusterman's son Brendan.

Filled with heart and insight, along with great, full characters and a moving storyline. Absolutely devoid of sentimentality and stereotype. Finally a book where schizophrenia is treated with depth, love, and honesty - rather than just being thrown in as caricature and plot device.
From a young age, I've watched my sister (and family) go through the trials of this illness, and though I've searched, I've never read anything come close to how well this book portrays the reality and humanity of the experience. Much thanks to Neal and Brendan Shusterman for creating this lovely book!
this has to be the best book about mental illness, i haven't read much before but i was so sucked into this i finished it in 3 days and it completely changed my mood from depressed to at peace each time i settled down to read, everything about this book is beautiful and everything fits together perfectly and the bits and pieces of the story start slowly falling into place and it's so stunning i wish i hadn't've finished it so i could keep reading, i feel like i'll never find a book like this
This book captures the many aspects of life, from confusion and self conflict. Love, fear, and dread. This book is a winding tale that will hook you from the very beginning, and change the way you view life.
