Fig isn't like evryone else. She lives betwwen reality and fantasy with her mom. She lives out in the country secluded from society and normalcy. She learns that her mother is schrizophrenic, and her world turns upside down. She nows has to live this new life and come to terms with herself and her family.
I thought that this book was very interesting. Especially reading from Fig's perspective throughout out her life until she's nineteen. You see how her life is effected and how it changes her reality and imagination, and her interactions with society. I loved how you get a inside look on how mental illness effects a family and persons life.
