(From the publisher):
In the blink of an eye, it happens. A teenage girl suffers a mental breakdown and lands in a psychiatric ward, haunted by voices, out of control, seemingly transformed into a stranger.
For the younger sister left behind, nothing will ever be the same. Fearful about her own sanity, her fragile friendships, and her unraveling world, she embarks on a fierce emotional journey. A succession of powerful poems stirs up a cyclone of emotion that sweeps the chilling landscape of mental illness.
