This book has generally mixed reviews, which says a lot about mental illness. When people don’t understand it, they look down upon it. This book is absolutely amazing--it shamelessly portrays mental illness without the stigma, and how hard it is to better yourself when you don't know what is wrong. I think for teens and adults this is a must read, even if you think your life is perfect. Choices affect everything, and whether or not those effects are good, they still matter. This book shows that life is a learning experience and we don't have it all figured out. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I wish more people would try and understand it.
