    Some children inherit the family nose. Autumn Stringam and her brother Joseph inherited bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that led to the suicides of their mother and grandfather. Autumn was in a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch by the time she was 22. Joseph, at 15, was prone to violent episodes so terrifying that his family feared for their lives.

    You are in for a real roller coaster with this great read. A beautifully written and excellently read book. The memories and descriptions are so precise I almost felt the pain, the mania and the joy.
    The details of the fight for Truehope are like another roller coaster. I found it hard to switch off.
    I work with people with mental illness and now have a much greater understanding of bipolar. A fantastic read, a book which should be read by all those who would deprive us of our right to chose how we care for our health. I was touched, moved, stunned, amazed. Congratulations Autumn, and your family,on your book and your life.

    When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11 year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life.

    I loved this. I had forgotten how fabulous the book is. I got it to listen to with my grand daughter (age 11). She enjoyed some of it, but it was not altogether to her current taste. Being very much of the movie generation and having seen the movie, she wanted the book to be the same. But I enjoyed every moment of it. A lovely classic beautifully read. One I am sure I will listen to again and again.
