A shockingly dark, funny, and heartbreaking portrait of a young teenager’s clash with mental illness and her battle toward understanding and recovery Ambitious, talented fourteen-year-old honors student Juliet is poised for success at her Southern California high school. However, she soon finds herself on an increasingly frightening spiral of drug use, self-harm, and mental illness that lands her in a remote therapeutic boarding school, where she must ultimately find the inner strength, and determination, to survive. This highly anticipated debut-from the writer hailed as “a combination of Denis Johnson and Joan Didion” (Dazed)-brilliantly captures the intimate triumph of a girl’s struggle to become the woman she knows she can be.
