Book Review: Mental

by Justice Serai

Hope is an illusion meant to convince the broken to keep on living. That’s me. Broken.

My father pays heaps of money for doctors at the Norfolk Psychiatric Center to fix me. I’ve spent six months of my prime teenage years at this residential facility – a place for teenagers who’ve gone mental.

That’s me. Mental.

Just when I begin to feel myself fade away, a boy with a wolfish smile and mischievous eyes reels me in. Julian is broken too, but he believes in me enough for the both of us. Through him, I begin to experience this thing called hope. Doctors can’t fix me, my parents can’t either, but maybe it’s not me who needs fixing.

After all, mental is only a state of mind. It all depends on who’s doing the thinking.

Lori's thoughts: **Copy graciously provided by author through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review**

I really wish I could have given this book more stars, because I love books about crazy. I just couldn't get into this one as much as I had hoped. The writing wasn't terrible. The main character, Lucy, she was even a believably written girl suffering from schizophrenia. I found myself skimming a lot of the book after the halfway mark just to get through it to see what happened. It kept me interested enough to see what would happen to the characters, but it didn't really pique my interest enough to devour every page. The book does have a lot of good reviews, so in all fairness, you read it and decide for yourself.
