My Friends Are All Strange by M.C. Lesh
Seventeen year old Becca has lost touch with reality, and is sent to a mental hospital. We follow her journey as she struggles with the medication that has been given to her to help her sleep, the wizard who appears in her dreams and also when she is awake, and her feelings of disconnect from reality. I like that she makes friends with the other teens in the facility with her and seeing her gradually get better while realizing that some of her friends there may never get better. I think this is an excellent book about mental illness for teens and I like that it is hopeful while still realistic. I highly recommend this book.
