Read the book review by American Association of Suicidology
"Their book offers a touching, easy to read account of Brooklyn’s battle with anxiety and depression, compounded by a diagnosis of complex regional pain syndrome. The combined points of view paired with the alternating writing styles of poetry and prose keep the reader easily moving through the book.
Brooklyn’s own poetry throughout the book offers a touching insight to her innermost thoughts. Issues addressed in her work include friendship, family, depression, pain and loss among other hardships that her generation faces daily. Brooklyn holds nothing back, sharing her journey, speaking for many whose voices are often lost in the chaos of teenage life. Her passion for becoming a voice for her generation bravely tears through the stigma and shame often associated with anxiety and depression.
Brooklyn has found healing and hope in various organizations and therapies. She is an artist and author. She has found strength in music and helping others. She and her mother’s passion to make a difference in the lives of other young people is clear. The authors’ candor will appeal to a vast audience, including young people and parents alike."
