Summary

Anna Bloom is depressed - so depressed that her parents have committed her to a mental hospital with a bunch of other messed-up teens. Here, she meets a roommate with a secret (and a plastic baby), a doctor who focuses way too much on her weight, and a cute, shy boy who just might like her.

But wait! Being trapped in a loony bin isn’t supposed to be about making friends, losing weight, and having a crush, is it? In her fiction debut, Julie Halpern finds humor in the unlikeliest of places, and presents a character whose voice - and heart - will resonate with all of us who have ever felt just a little bit crazy.

Realistic

This book really explains the life of a teenager in a mental health hospital. The story is realistic as well and keeps you interested the whole way through

really quite boring,

it was dull, the main character lacked any type of real intrigue or depth. really quote a bad/simplistic portrayal of mental illness.

Wonderful!

I looked at the title of this book and was hesitant. I gave it a try by listening to the sample and was hooked. Now my kids are listening to it and really enjoying the story. Every time we are in the car and get home - they don't want to leave the car because they are listening to the story. Quite a bit heavy on the swearing - but my kids pointed out - she is not really saying them since it is a book and it was only written down.

Awesome

This book is a fast read that I couldn’t stop listening to. I love the styles and personalities of all the people and characters. The performance was good and she did the different voices very well. Overall, I would recommend to almost anybody.

ugh....

I couldn't wait until this was over....I suppose if you are a teenager, this story may be of interest, but if not, don't waste your time.
