There are many books about living with mental illness; this is a story about dying from it. A son gives back the gift of life and launches the author on a mission a search for normal and who gets to decide. Crossing international boundaries, from the U.S. to Brazil, Deena Baxter's journey shines a light on a harsher reality: how the stigma of mental illness keeps it cloaked in denial. Using heartache, humor, and creative full-color graphics, Baxter brings mental illness out of the darkness and gives it a voice worth listening to.
