The fascinating, shocking, and ultimately quite hopeful story of one teen’s downward spiral into mental illness by the bestselling author of Tweak

Miles’ little brother Teddy is missing. The police believe he drowned at the beach—the very same day Miles had his first schizophrenic episode. But Miles knows better—Teddy is alive. Kidnapped. There was even a witness! Fueled by guilt, Miles sets off to rescue Teddy.

There is so much to overcome, though. The endless pills he must take. The girl who steals his heart and plays with it. The black crows that follow him.

As seen through Miles’ distorted perception, his world closes around him as he pushes to keep it open. What you think you know about his world is actually a blur of gray, though, and the sharp focus of reality proves startling.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In his first novel, memoirist Sheff provides an insightful perspective on one teen’s struggle with mental illness, including the challenges of finding the right medications to treat his condition. Sheff’s spare writing style, combined with descriptions of San Francisco’s foggy skies and Miles’s own neglected home that ‘lets in water when it rains,’ creates a mood of isolation and desperation that permeates the story.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Readers fascinated by the dark side of the human mind in realistic fiction will enjoy this deft portrayal of a brain and a life spiraling out of control. Miles is an endearing character whose difficult journey will generate compassion and hope.”

    Shool Library Journal

  • “The genre tension is excellent: is this a mystery novel or is it all in his head?”

    Booklist

  • “A teen with schizophrenia is getting better—isn’t he?…Given the grim reality of medical management of schizophrenia (and the bleakness of depictions of it in teen fiction), the cautious optimism of Miles’ life is most welcome.”
