She feels totally alone without her best friend at her side until she meets Jonah.

She tells Kris about her boyfriend and Kris is like, why haven’t the two of you kissed after two or three weeks already? While April wonders the same thing, it’s nice just to take it slow. They do finally kiss but then he starts showing signs of strange behavior, which April doesn’t know how to take.

April believes in what she is doing and knows that her boyfriend is trusting of only her. She is the only one that he loves and the only one that believes him. His own mother had forsaken him, and she knows that she is pretty much one of the only things that he has left that he can rely on.

April is determined to reveal the truth of what he is going through in the hopes of making it all better. She was going to go down the hallway and go to the office of his doctor and give her the secret notebook so that she can see what he is hiding and know what up until now only April knows. But will it be enough to save him, or is the boy that she loves struggling with something much bigger than modern medicine and love can contend with?

This young adult book captures the struggle of mental illness and what it is like to be dealing with suicidal thoughts, depression, and even schizophrenia. It is at the same time an interesting and informative read, one that puts a microscope to the concept of being crazy and what it takes to deal with being insane. With April on Jonah’s side, maybe they both might be able to make it– or will the disease and the past that haunts him finally end up being far too much?

Pick up this book and see what happens in this well-written tale and where ultimately the fates of the two will take them in this introspective and engaging novel for young adults.
