The blog for books and movies

Alex fights a daily battle to figure out the difference between reality and delusion. Armed with a take-no-prisoners attitude, her camera, a Magic 8-Ball, and her only ally (her little sister), Alex wages a war against her schizophrenia, determined to stay sane long enough to get into college. She’s pretty optimistic about her chances until classes begin, and she runs into Miles. Didn’t she imagine him? Before she knows it, Alex is making friends, going to parties, falling in love, and experiencing all the usual rites of passage for teenagers. But Alex is used to being crazy. She’s not prepared for normal.

Comments on: "Made you up – Francesca Zappia" (1)

  1. I would recommend the story “Made You Up” written by Francesca Zappia. This book delved really deep into the mental issues of Alex, a teenage girl living with schizophrenia. The book doesn’t really fit into a genre like romance or mystery but I think that’s one of the things I love most about it. It will take you on a rollercoaster of ups and down and leave you wondering what is real and what isn’t. The book can be very descriptive and I wouldn’t recommend it for people under the age of 14 because of some of it’s mature themes. The book has plot twists, confused emotions and drama that will leave you with a feeling of “What did I just read?” This book will make you want to reread it just for the sake of fully comprehending it’s craziness. I absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend it for those interested in mental health issues or interesting/quirky plotlines.
