Bipolar is not a black and white "highs and lows" sort of disorder - it has a spectrum. The main character's journey through her diagnosis and her path to self discovery are enlightening. I love her journalling exercise and how she breaks down the different parts of her moods/energy level/state of physical being so that she can keep track of where she is.

I am grateful to read a book that helps defuse the stigma attached to bipolar and break down the elements of it so that it is easier to understand.

The story itself is a good story and the character is likable. It also could be a good lead-in to reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

If you don't know much about bipolar disorder, and what it looks like before it's diagnosed, this book is perfect for you. It's a little difficult to get through, because of some tough topics, but if you stick with it, you will be enlightened!
