Publisher's Summary

Caught in a paranoid delusion that she's a bionic spy responsible for 9/11, adoptee Laura Dennis must fight her perfectionist, self-destructive tendencies to regain her sanity.

Adopted Reality is a September 11 memoir unlike any you've read. This thrilling psychological adventure follows the ups and downs of bipolar, and examines relationships biological and circumstantial. Laura had always been Miss Perfect - making excellent grades, showing promising dance ability, trying her best to be there for her friends and family.

But she just couldn't do it anymore.

They say not to make more than one big change in your life at a time, but with a break up, a job change, a move across the country, and the separation of her adoptive parents, when Laura gets the opportunity to reunite with her birth mom - she is not passing it up! She is elated to meet her biological mother, who she connects with instantly. All of this is undoubtedly too much for anyone, but especially so for someone who has struggled her entire life with depression and mania.

After a beloved uncle dies in the Twin Towers, the tension that has been building explodes and all Laura can do is sit back and watch as her adopted family and her sanity quickly disintegrate. While everyone proudly believes she's fulfilling her dream to dance, Laura insanely thinks she's a spy for the Illuminati who unwittingly perpetrated 9/11. She nearly loses her mind permanently, and she must now learn to exist between the highs and lows, living forever a recovering perfectionist, and ultimately discovering her own Adopted Reality.
