Review

"For anyone who wants to get inside the head of a teen with bipolar disorder - this is a must read. The descriptions of the main character's moods are so authentic and vivid that I had to pause while I was reading and share them with my friends." Charlotte Walker, award-winning mental health blogger, winner of the best mental health Twitter account: @BipolarBlogger.

"To Pieces shines a spotlight on the complexities of struggling with mental illness during the vulnerable teenage years. The main character, Jane, walks the reader through her thoughts and behavior during mania and depression and illustrates why combatting stigma with support and education is so important. This is a great read for teenagers both wanting to learn more about mental illness and those struggling with their own mental health!"-Aubrey Good, Program Coordinator at International Bipolar Foundation

"I could not put this book down... This is the first mental illness book that really, really affected me... I cannot wait to read something else from this author." - P.S. I Love that Book Blog

..".The author definitely captured my interest and kept it going all the way until the last page. I was left sad to see that familiar 'Acknowledgements' page. I can promise that if this story was to continue, I would be there to read it... Any young adult would enjoy this book if looking for something that could captivate and inspire at the same time." - Teen Reads.com

Product Description

To friends and family Jane seemed like a normal teen... until one day she didn't...

Jane (aka Plain Jane) has always known she was different inside, and not in a good way. This has driven her to her construct her life as a solid B, for average, person and to carefully follow the rules of her high school hierarchy. But, when she undergoes her first bipolar episode and becomes acutely manic, she thumbs her nose at that hierarchy and begins a campaign to revolutionize her high school and rise up against its stifling social norms – and shake up the school she does. She becomes the most talked about student and no longer cares what anyone thinks of her as her over-the-top, comedic antics play out in public. Her mission culminates with an outrageous school presidential election speech and subsequent hospitalization.

Once Jane has come down from the mania and is released from the psychiatric hospital, she is humiliated by what she’s done and descends into suicidal depression. Now she’ll never fit in again. She’ll forever be known as the giant freak she's always believed she was. And she’s ruined a burgeoning romance with the biggest crush she’s ever had. Making matters worse, she also discovers a devastating and dark family secret that her absent, indifferent mother has been harboring.

Jane crawls her way back from the ledge and begins the healing process, but she won’t return to school, where she’s certain she’ll be the biggest outcast ever. But, a chance encounter with a former schoolmate leads her to reassess that decision – and her whole life.

Is she truly all that different from “normal” teenagers? Did her campaign actually change her high school? Did she change
lives? Is her mother the unloving narcissist she’d always believed she was?

Fans of Laurie Halse Anderson, John Green, 13 Reasons Why, All the Bright Places and It’s Kind of a Funny Story will enjoy this gripping and gritty story.
