30 Day Challenge - Day 14

Today's Topic: A Non-Fiction Book

The Quiet Room by Lori Shiller & Amanda Bennett. 

This book was simply UH-MAZE-ING.  I read it in 2 days. Literally.

Its the story of Lori's life and her spiral into madness as schizophrenia takes over.  If you have ever wondered exactly what someone goes through when dealing with psychosis this is the book for you.  It is absolutely heartbreaking to read what she and her family went through.  Some of the chapters are written from Lori's perspective while others written by her family, nurses, doctors "fill in the blanks" for the periods of time Lori isn't able to remember. 

I don't think I can fully describe how fantastic this book is so I'm just going to say...

You just need to read it... Now!
