Synopsis

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?

Alex is starting her senior year at a new school, and she’s desperate to keep her paranoid schizophrenia under wraps. She doesn’t want people to look at her how they did at her last school, but it’s a little difficult when she must constantly be on alert for communists and making sure no-one has bugged or poisoned her food. She meets Miles during community service, who seems strangely familiar, but who the whole school seems scared of. Miles isn’t the nicest guy, but there’s something about him, and Alex enjoys antagonising him as much as he likes antagonising her. But is Miles someone Alex should really fear? And why is popular Celia suddenly having secret conversations with her bullying mum in the gym? What are they plotting? A fantastic look at mental illness and a wonderful debut!
