This book definitely gave me some insight into what it is like for people to have bipolar. I did want more from the story...but I am not quite sure what it was the book was missing.
Overall, I was left feeling very happy for Lizzy Simon.

Lizzie Simon, a diagnosed bipolar, decides to take leave from her job and drive around the country looking for her "herd," people like her, who, because of a defining moment, were diagnosed manic depressive, but, despite the difficulties, were successful and living life to the fullest. What she discovered was that people with bipolar are complex and at times, very hard to define and that success sometimes is just being able to wake up and say "Hey, I'm alive." A quick, powerful read. Highly recommended.
