This book was written back around the same time "Go Ask Alice" and books like that, it touches on a girl who has some sort of mental disorder, it doesn't tell exactly what she's suffering from but it describes it all.

Overall, it was a good book, a quick read and something I enjoyed when I read it. I suggest it.

A heart wrenching tale of a bright 16 year old girl's struggle with mental illness at a time when parents were in denial and teachers didn't want to interfere.

Was told by an older woman friend that this book was one that she had to read in high school back in the 40's. I had to read it and of course it was really moving, if you suffer from any mental or emotional issues it's a good quick read that is a novel along those lines.
