Books are a great escape when you're not feeling so great about everything around you.
Sometimes, you come across a book that accurately represents a character living with your same mental illness.
Maybe you connected to Plath's writing in The Bell Jar .
Or perhaps you relate to Finn or Violet in Jennifer Niven's All the Bright Places.
Or maybe you connected to Andy's PTSD in The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson.
