    Stacy Pershall grew up as an overly intelligent, depressed, deeply strange girl in Prairie Grove, Arkansas, population 1,000. From her days as a 13-year-old Jesus freak through her eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, this spirited memoir chronicles Pershall's journey through hell and her struggle with the mental health care system.

    Lindsay says: "Short, but Intense Memoir"
    "Compelling, Heartbreaking, and Hilarious"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Loud in the House of Myself the most enjoyable?

    Unlike some previous reviewers, I found the narration quite compelling. The author's story is presented in the author's own voice. She has a manner of brilliant understatement that, even when describing the more harrowing events, never loses its wry humor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There's only one real character of note in this book, and that's Stacy herself. I share a similar socioeconomic background with her, also growing up in rural Arkansas, and I can relate to feeling like an outsider in my own skin.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moments I enjoyed the most were her description of her college life, particularly during her freshman year.
