Wendy K. Williamson shows the effects of bipolar disorder on the mind, body and soul of those who suffer from it. Despite Wendy's struggles, this is a not a book that brings the listener down, rather a road map for wellness and a vastly informative, yet entertaining, guided tour of bipolar disorder for those who don't understand it. With her perceptive self-awareness, the author is equal parts comedienne and educator, and she tells the unbelievable highs and lows of her story with a clear, grounded candor.
Rick is none too happy when his mother ups and drags him from San Diego, where he had friends, to Arizona, where he knows no one except for Fat Boy, his cat.

She's a fire-breathing, princess-chasing, time-traveling, hotheaded dragon, with her own ideas on just about everything. Now Rick and his neighbor Natalie are in the hot seat.
