This is the same author who wrote The universe versus Alex Woods, I recall in the review I wrote of that book, that I hope the author writes something new real soon.
It’s been a little while, but worth the wait. The thread of this story is bipolar disorder, told from the perspective of the person who has it. The main character, Abby is on an upward ride to the hypo-manic state and we experience all that comes with it. Then, there is the mighty low and we are right along on that ride too. The road to recovery is an emotional roller coaster for all concerned, the reader included.
This is the point where Abby meets Melody Black. I was most impressed by how much one can learn in a darkly humorous but also sad telling of such a widespread condition. The author himself has bipolar disorder.
