    1. This is the sort of book you instantly relate to the story of a young woman growing up and trying her best to get by, financially and emotionally This young woman happens to be a lesbian and a manic depressive, and it portrays both worlds perfectly for those who haven t experienced them she also has Tourettes, but this plays a less important role More than that, though, it s a very helpful tale, and I would recommend it to anyone struggling with mental illness.The book follows Stephanie from fai [...]

    5. I received this book in a free giveaway I enjoyed this book because it was personable I know people who struggle with mental illnesses and I have never understood Stephanie Schroeder s book helped me in that sense It was an honest account of 15 years in her life, probably the darkest years Great and easy read I read it in one sitting

    6. This is a very raw and honest view into mental illness Stephanie takes a risk by sharing her harrowing experiences with the world and we all can benefit from knowing it This book is a great reminder that you shouldn t be afraid or ashamed to ask for help.

    7. Excellent, honest and forthright memoir about the author s own experience dealing with and successfully managing her illness of bipolar disorder.

    8. I enjoyed the author s writing style, but feel she didn t add much insight into the narration She criticizes her partners, family and relationships with a heavy hand, but rarely turns that analysis on herself I found myself thinking it was too self indulgent she paints herself as the brilliant but tortured victim of her circumstance without any accompanying sense of self reflection Then I remembered that I was reading a book entitled Beautiful Wreck perhaps it was exactly the author s intent to [...]

    9. Beautiful Wreck is great in that it illustrates a story of mental illness that ends in a positive note it lets people know that there is hope, even after years of depression bi polar disorder and three suicide attempts However, the narrative didn t do much for me It just was The story didn t leave me with any profound thoughts or feeling about her story Maybe it was the lack of introspection Therapy is discussed a lot of in the book, but never goes into how it helped, what was talked about or an [...]

    10. How does someone survive such a tumultuous life How did she achieve so much creatively and professionally while enduring and causing so much personal drama and distress The story is compelling but left me unenlightened about what it s like to live with mania.
