Praise

An ALA-YALSA Best Book for Young Adults * A Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year * Kansas National Education Association Reading Circle Catalog Selection Book of the Year * Rhode Island Teen Book Award Nominee * A CBC’s 2 Teen Choice Book Awards Nominee 

“Creates a psychologically tense story with sympathetic characters while dispelling myths about a much-feared condition.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

A welcome novel that doesn’t treat schizophrenia as an unavoidable sentence of doom and that allots friendship and romance equal weight with mental illness.” —Kirkus Reviews

Walton does a brilliant job of giving a voice to a population that is often silenced.” —Booklist

Despite heavy subject matter, Adam is hilarious and infinitely lovable, and the ending is hopeful and realistic rather than happily-ever-after and contrived.” —The Hub, YALSA

Imaginative writing and beautiful storytelling make this book an upbeat tale, but the message [of acceptance] is still driven home.” —VOYA

A brutal, beautiful book that sits right beside The Perks of Being a Wallflower and I’ll Give You the Sun.” —Jennifer Longo, author of Up to This Pointe

“This book reminds me of A Monster Calls. I saved the final twenty pages for the next day because I didn’t want Adam’s story to end.” —Peter Brown Hoffmeister, author of This Is the Part Where You Laugh
