  • Schizophrenia Helicopter Man first demonstrated this, and Goodbye Jamie Boyd continues to do so, and whether mental illness inspires Fensham in some way because of the inherent internal conflict to be found there, or whether her research for Helicopter Man has prompted her to explore the theme for older readers is beside the point The fact is that she does it very well, Schizophrenia Helicopter Man first demonstrated this, and Goodbye Jamie Boyd continues to do so, and whether mental illness inspires Fensham in some way because of the inherent internal conflict to be found there, or whether her research for Helicopter Man has prompted her to explore the theme for older readers is beside the point The fact is that she does it very well, particularly in the way she keeps the reader somewhat in the dark for the first third or of the book, keeping Jamies identity something of a mystery As I read, I wondered in turn whether Jamie was in no particular order real or an imaginary friend or a ghost or a manifestation of mental illness And with every exchange between Anna and Jamie during the first part of the book, each of these possibilities provides its own sinister implications although the scene on the bus is a bit of a loose clue But as far as I can tell, this uncertainty about what is reality and what isn t is a very real part of the struggle with schizophrenia Provided by publisher.

    This novel was very different to most that I have read in many ways, and despite this I still found myself amazed at every word of it.I first picked it up during a double period of English speeches that we were doing in the library. I’d already done my speech and was getting pretty bored, so I picked up this book of the ‘new books’ stand that was next to me and started reading. It took me under an hour to read, but it was well worth it.The book is written in verse, which is something you d [...]

    YA verse novel about schizophrenia, first person, by the author of "Helicopter Man". Some moments - particularly in the descriptions of the character's family dealing with her illness - were quite beautiful and made me almost teary. But resolution just came way too easy. The final line is "it's all fine". Which it isn't.

    This verse novel for teens comes from the perspective of a young girl who discovers that she has a mental illness. Lightly and deftly written this is a very insightful look at a young girl coping her discovery that the brother who has been such a huge player in her life is not as he seems.

    What an absolutely divine little book. Written in verse from Anna's perspective it covers a range of topics; none of which I can talk about because you need to pick this book up without knowing much about it to get the best out of it. It's only 88 pages of 'verse' so even less writing in it than a novel.

    This book was good and intriguing for an 80 something paged book but I wasn't much of a fan of the ending. Good short book though

    In the first few pages I thought I wasn't going to like this book, but decided to stick it out because it was only short, and I'm really glad I did.

    An insightful look into mental illness told in verse.
