Mental illness is no longer a controversial subject, and books for children and teenagers now cover a wide range of topics. Stories about young people and their peers, siblings, or parents who suffer from anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, hypochondria, and other illnesses are engrossing and informative to read, and they can help create empathy and understanding.

I purchased this book on the spur of the moment because I wanted something light to read. The decision turned out to be such a wonderful gift! I was shocked, surprised, and couldn’t put it down instead of a light read. Osher takes you on a trip that will make you think. Osher is an extraordinary person, and I believe his courage in sharing his storey can inspire many others. This book has completely changed the way I think about and handle my own anxiety, as well as my daughter’s. It’s extremely accessible and frank, and it delves into such a personal and in-depth subject that you can’t help but feel like you’ve seen some of it yourself. I can’t say enough good things about this novel.

This is a substantial book that covers a wide range of topics. Miranda and Lucia (Jie and Mei) are Chinese sisters who were raised in the United States by their single mother. The two girls are inseparable. Lucia marries an older Israeli with one arm who owns an organic deli in New York. It works despite their differences. Lucia’s mental disorder is the problem in Paradise that changes everything. It has a major impact on many people’s lives. Lucia, desiring a boy, leaves Yonah, hooks up with an illegal immigrant from Ecuador, has a baby girl Esperanza, has breakdowns, recovers, argues with her sister and husband overtaking her medication, returns to Ecuador to live in a typical campo, doesn’t quite fit in, plots to take Essie and return to the United States to live with Yonah.

First, We Make the Beast Beautiful: A New Journey Through Anxiety

This was an informative and moving account of anxiety by a woman who fights for her mental health every day. Sarah Wilson’s life-affirming journey and candid depiction of what it’s like to live with a variety of illnesses have me in awe. Despite the fact that her anxiety will always be there – a beast made beautiful thanks to her courage – the author’s open-minded and enthusiastic account of her quest for one has opened my eyes to what it is like to be courageous as well as make use of whatever opportunities there are to make the most of life despite the fact that her anxiety will always be there

This was my first John Green book. Despite the fact that I’ve seen the movies and screamed like a baby. So, in order to spare me any tears, I stopped reading the books. This book had everything you might want: romance, intrigue, friendship, and, most importantly, sane words from the psychiatrist. And there have been some strange occurrences. I didn’t cry ugly tears when reading this novel, but I did sob. And I’m sure Aza, Davis, and Daisy will be trapped within my spiral of thoughts for a long time The explanation of Aza’s thoughts was my favourite part of the novel. And she has her own peculiar habits, which can be self-destructive at times.

I Have Lost My Way

I Have Lost My Way is a novel about three young people who feel like they have nothing left in life after experiencing a major loss in their personal lives. We may lose anything not because someone dies, but because of circumstances, and this is an issue that many people face around the world. This author has taken the time to write this book, and I believe it was a blessing to me to read it, and it can be a gift to others as well, regardless of age. While this book is marketed as a young adult novel, I believe it has something to say to everyone; no one has lived a life without experiencing losses and the consequences of those losses.

History Is All You Left Me

This is without a doubt one of the most incredible books I’ve ever read. It’s stunning and so much more. I adored the characters, and their trials seemed to be very real to me. I could sense Theo’s loss. Griffin’s pain was palpable to me. Just a few books have had such an impact on me as this one. I would recommend it to everyone! It also gets bonus points for being environmentally friendly. The subject matter is obviously painful and emotional, but I considered Griffin to be a reliably negative force until the very end. I liked the ride he took, but not him. Having said that, anyone who enjoys contemporary YA should pick up this sensitive and well-written novel. Just know that you’re in for a roller coaster ride! I’d read another book by this author in the future.

This book was recommended to me, and its wonderful storey pulled me in from the first page. The characters are intriguing and believable. The storey deals with sadness and loss, as well as growing up in difficult situations, but it unfolds so beautifully that it feels like a privilege to peek into Biz’s inner world and share her life as it unfolds. This book’s writing is mystical, lyrical, and delightful. I found myself highlighting some descriptive phrases because they were so lovely that I knew I would want to read them again and again. A beautifully written book that forces you to reconsider your assumptions about other people’s inner lives.

A World Without You

You guys, this book was amazing! I feel compelled to recommend it. It was an unsettling read for me because the mental disorder it discusses is not something I’ve seen, and it opened my eyes in unexpected ways. However, it is lovely and sweet, and it is as much about family and healing as it is about young love and mental illness. It irritates you, but you can’t help but fall in love with the character.

Symptoms of Being Human

This is a fantastic novel that is both diverse and representative. In reality, this is one of the first books I’ve read in 2016 that has made me reconsider what I had thought to be true and recognize that everyone has multiple layers. Riley is a high school student and a genderfluid writer, and SOBH is told from her viewpoint. Riley hasn’t told her parents or anybody else except her psychiatrist yet. As a means of speech, a hidden blog is started, which is a huge hit among the LGBTQ+ community. Riley is a dynamic character who kept me involved in her life affairs throughout the book.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

It’s not one of those books where you realize how great it is halfway through. It gradually overtakes you. Or, at the very least, it has crept up on me gradually. And the more I read about it, the more I fell in love with it. And now that I’ve finished reading it, I can confidently state that this is one of my favorite books of all time.I should also note that I’ve been putting off reading this book for quite some time. One of the reasons was that I believed it had been over-hyped (silly me). But then, for University, we had to read this novel, and I’m so glad the professor chose this one. It was the first book I had to read, and it was one of my favorites.
