Hannah has always been the perfect child other parents envied. She's brilliant, confident, and in control. So she knows she shouldn't have been institutionalized, in a place where she has to wear paper pajamas and "earn" shower privileges, after her best friend's tragic accident. It's an injustice she's determined to point out to the judge at her hearing. In the meantime, she works on becoming her roommate Lucy's best friend, so that she can show how "not dangerous" she is, while manipulating the incompetent staff. This compelling character study begins like a thriller—the mystery of what happened to her friend Agnes draws considerable suspense—but once Hannah is diagnosed with schizophrenia, it becomes a nuanced exploration of mental illness. Hannah's tight, first-person perspective is ideal for this shift in tone, as it makes her real life and her delusions difficult to distinguish. Hannah's bittersweet return to reality, where she grieves people she lost, both real and imagined, and confronts the future of managing her illness, is hard-won and ends in an uncomfortable, but realistic, place of uncertainty. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
