This review is from: Loud in the House of Myself: Memoir of a Strange Girl (Hardcover)
Intelligent, witty, brilliant, heartbreaking, hilarious, hard-to-fathom and hitting home too. If you grew up in a small town in the 80's and were/are even the least bit weird or quirky...this is one GREAT read! It's another one I read slowly, because it's that good. Pershall is an excellent wordsmith and captivating with her story. She's bold enough to not only "come out" with mental illness but do a great deal to help the reader understand it and remove the stigma associated with it. This book is great from start to finish. There's despair, chaos, hope and healing. Quite a recipe for a great book and this one is.
