    January First is a brilliant and harrowingly honest memoir. The story of Michael Schofield's daughter January's descent into scizophrenia, and her family's struggle to save her, will fascinate and move listeners. January First is the extraordinary story of a father's fight to save his child from an extremely severe case of mental illness in the face of overwhelming adversity.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I heard about this book on NPR. It is an incredible story which taught me so much about schizophrenia and families that must deal with not only the disease but the obstacles our society places in the way of loving families trying to cope. Once you start you will not be able to stop listening. It is a true tragic story that reads like a great piece of fiction.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me very thoughtful and very grateful !

    Single mother Callie has come to rely heavily on her best friend Suzy. But Callie suspects Suzy's life isn't as simple as it seems. It's time she pulled away - going back to work is just the first step towards rediscovering her old confidence. So why does she keep putting off telling Suzy about her new job? And who will care for her rather frail daughter, Rae, while she is gone?

    This book was more complex than I originally thought it would be( based on the synopsis).
    It was well written and drew me in from the start. Definitely a "wortth listening" to book.
