Nothing Like Normal: Surviving a Sibling’s Schizophrenia
by Martha Graham-Waldon
What if you woke up one day, living with a family member who had changed into an entirely different person? What if she were an older sibling you had always admired and strived to be like? And what if you were an insecure preteen when it all started? What would that do to your life?
In Nothing Like Normal, after an idyllic childhood, the strains of adolescence send one sister spiraling down into a mental breakdown, leaving her younger sibling and family to cope with the aftermath. The author must face her fears, while navigating the ups and downs of her own volatile teen years, and find her truth or be pulled in the same direction as her former mentor. Her struggle to survive and move forward on a journey of self-discovery will resonate with anyone who has known the heartbreak of mental illness in their family, while inspiring hope and healing as well.
