Anna Bloom is depressed–so depressed that her parents have committed her to a mental hospital with a bunch of other messed-up teens. Here, she meets a roommate with a secret (and a plastic baby), a doctor who focuses way too much on her weight, and a cute, shy boy who just might like her.But wait! Being trapped in a loony bin isn’t supposed to be aboutmaking friends, losing weight, and having a crush, is it? In her fiction debut, Julie Halpern finds humor in the unlikeliest of places, and presents a character whose voice–and heart–will resonate with all of us who have ever felt just a little bit crazy.
Julie Halpern is the author of several books, including Get Well Soon, Have a Nice Day, and Maternity Leave. Previously, she was a school librarian and now resides in Chicago with her family.
