Crazy by Han Nolan
“I glance at the exit across the room. I want out. The bird in my chest is crashing up against its cage. I can feel the heavy thump, thump, thump of its feverish body inside and I open my mouth, not to speak, but to let the bird out so I can breathe.”
How do I explain why this little known should be on everyone's must read list. It's a book about mental illness, and about trying to survive despite the odds. It's got a great group of friends and a host of hilarious imaginary commentators.
How about this, I PROMISE you won't regret it! Does that do it? Does that make you want to pick it up?
