I recently had the pleasure of reviewing the book "Hurry Down Sunshine" by Michael Greenberg. This terrific book details how the author dealt with his teen daughter's mental illness. It is a quick and engaging read. As a matter of fact, I finished it in a weekend!
I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Greenberg (coming soon!) and he shared something interesting with me. He said that many teens felt as if they could relate to his daughter even though they did not have her mental illness. His struggle to communicate with his daughter who was sick seemed to parallel the difficulties that the average teen has when communicating with his or her parents. Fascinating stuff, and reason enough to read this fascinating book.
