Reality, it turns out, is often not what you perceive it to be sometimes, there really is someone out to get you. For fans of Silver Linings Playbook and Liar, this thought-provoking debut tells the story of Alex, a high school senior and the ultimate unreliable narrator unable to tell the difference between real life and delusion.

Alex fights a daily battle to figure out what is real and what is not. Armed with a take-no-prisoners attitude, her camera, a Magic 8 Ball, and her only ally (her little sister), Alex wages a war against her schizophrenia, determined to stay sane long enough to get into college. She's pretty optimistic about her chances until she runs into Miles. Didn't she imagine him? Before she knows it, Alex is making friends, going to parties, falling in love, and experiencing all the usual rites of passage for teenagers. But Alex is used to being crazy. She's not prepared for normal. Can she trust herself? Can we trust her?

Review quote

Alex is a funny, touching, determined, and smart character, and her story is complex and interesting. Fans of E. Lockhart s We Were Liars and Matthew Quick s Silver Linings Playbook will immerse themselves in this nuanced look at trying to live a normal life while coping with mental illness. --Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"
