Ben Behind His Voices by Randye Kaye
Apparently, after reading all those Swedish novels, I am now reading about mental health. This book is a memoir written by 'Ben's' mother. Ben starts out life as a perfect little boy but somewhere in high school develops mental issues. After years, he is diagnosed with schizophrenia. A diagnosis, by the way, that he doesn't agree with. This book details the struggles of a mother, daughter and son to cope with the diagnosis. You should read this book. It is engrossing, enlightening and very educational.
