To be in love goes against everything that Bette Carter has learned in life. She doesn't want to believe in fairy tales, doesn't want to alter herself to please anyone. Growing up with her mother, "the addicted to love chameleon," had forced her to construct walls and escape routes designed to protect herself. Forming attachments is not an option. As she enters into the big city nightlife and an underworld of punk rock, Bette is amazed at how many people she finds that are like her. Wasn't she an individual after all? At The Madhouse she finds comfort in her surroundings and unbelievably...she finds love. As her world conspires against her, Bette will find out who she really is, who she can count on, and who she can't live without. Who will be her biggest enemy? Will it be love, jealousy, fear or her own ideals? Find out inside Madhouse (a novel).
