    Pete Earley had no idea. He'd been a journalist for over 30 years, and the author of several award-winning, even best-selling, nonfiction books about crime and punishment and society. Yet he'd always been on the outside looking in. He had no idea what it was like to be on the inside looking out until his son, Mike, was declared mentally ill, and Earley was thrown headlong into the maze of contradictions, disparities, and catch-22s that is America's mental health system.

    C. Anne says: "Harrowing, Heart-Breaking"
    "Good blend of historical/current"
    Overall

    Great book if you want to understand what the mental health system is now and some of the reasons it is the way it is.

    Story

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Three generation saga"
    Overall

    I wasn't sure I would like this type of novel and I thought the subject matter could be uncomfortable. This audiobook has both the best story AND narration I have heard. The potentially uncomfortable subject of hermephroditism, while central to the story, is treated so matter of factly, yet humanely, I would recommend this book to my mom. Only some necessary moments of embarassing adolescence made me want to shut my ears.
