Having Bipolar disorder can make life unpredictable for Mel. Especially because none of her friends know the truth. She tries to keep everyone at arm’s length so she won’t be able to hurt them. But that has become increasingly difficult as she battles her growing feelings in a new relationship. And when someone from the past shows up with no warning, her deeply buried secrets now threaten to come loose.

This was a great read for bipolar disorder representation. It was my first read regarding a teenage main character with bipolar disorder. This book was heartbreaking and beautiful. The portrayal of this mental disorder I believe was very accurate. There were so many twists and turns in this exciting and meaningful story. I was not a fan of the ending, it was a huge step down from the rest of the book.

If you want to know what it is like to have bipolar disorder, you should really read this book.
