From the book flap:

Anna Bloom has just come home from a three-week stay in a mental hospital. She feels . . . okay. It’s time to get back to some sort of normal, whatever that means. She has to go back to school, where teachers and friends are dying to know what happened to her, but too afraid to ask. And Anna is dying to know what’s going on back at the hospital with her crush, Justin, but is also too afraid to ask. Meanwhile, Anna’s parents aren’t getting along, and she wonders if she’s the cause of her family’s troubles.

It’s a lot for anyone, but especially for a girl who’s just come home, and who everyone wants to be fine. Anna feels better, but is she fine? Is anyone?

Fans of Julie Halpern’s first book about Anna Bloom, Get Well Soon, will welcome her home. Readers new to Anna’s world will appreciate this character whose voice—and heart—will resonate with all of us who have ever felt just a little bit crazy.


"Biting wit makes this quest for suburban normalcy in the face of depression and anxiety both laugh-out-loud funny and immensely intelligent... Fresh as a daisy and sharp as a tack." - Kirkus Reviews Starred Review
