Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante

This was a very difficult read.

Not sure I'm glad I read it.

Well done, certainly, but heartbreaking.

An inside look at mental deterioration.... if you struggle with a mental illness of any sort, you might want to think twice before reading this.  Personally, I internalize too much when I read and this was painful.

The slow transition from 1st to 2nd to 3rd person was fascinating and disturbing-- how easily we can lose ourselves entirely.

Overall, I just want it out of my head.
