Publisher Comments:

Stacy Pershall grew up as an overly intelligent, depressed, deeply strange girl in Prairie Grove, Arkansas, population 1,000. From her days as a thirteen-year-old Jesus freak through her eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, this spirited memoir chronicles Pershall's journey through hell and her struggle with the mental health care system.

Synopsis:

"An utterly unique journey down some of the mind's more mysterious byways . . . ranges from the shocking to the simply lovely."--Marya Hornbacher

I suspect I will be picking this book up to re-read soon. Delving into mental illness with humor and honesty in a way that not only pulls the reader in, but invites them to make admissions of suffering for themselves. Not just another 'self exploration book', Pershall writes like the bad-ass cooler sister to keep you interested and invested in her outcome.
