Likes:

• I don't know what it's like to be schizophrenic, but thanks to this book, I think I have a pretty good idea now. This book tells us all the ugly details, and let me tell you it's not pretty. It's very realistic though, which is this book's biggest strength. It goes into detail with hallucination, medication and thoughts about said medication, friendship (or lack of same), youth etc. It does it's job really well

• I loved Jesse, I would've loved to hear more about her. I liked all the characters, but Jesse's story really caught my attention. Funny enough, she didn't really have a big role in this book and it seemed that she was just there to show that life goes on with or without you at an institution - there will always be people needing help. Sort of. I'm not sure how to explain...

Dislikes:

• I would've loved more details such as how did Lucy get that bad, what happened? It felt like the book kept refering to a specific event, but I never found out what it was about. I could be wrong though.

• The ending felt a bit rushed, it just seemed like the easy way out.
