Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life is work; Work is life. Greenberg portrays a compelling story of a sixteen year old girl fighting an "emotionally gripping" mental illness. The story illustrates the mental, physical, and emotional fight of a young person in a mental institute. Deborah, the main character, will wrap around your little finger as you hear her tell her story. You will fight with her, and fall with her. I learned that taking the little things in life for granted is the biggest mistake that we as humans can make. This bestseller is an easy read, but is also very compelling. I highly recommend it for anyone who may encouter such situations in their lives because it helped me gain a different perspective on mental illness.
