Finished A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom. I received a copy for review.
Mel is 16 and is bipolar. Her family knows but no one else does. She’s sure that no one will want to be her friend if they know. As a result, she keeps her friends at a distance. Except, of course, that only works for so long.
Eric Lindstrom is becoming one of my favorite authors. His books deal with damaged people (and people who aren’t damaged for the reasons you may initially think they are) and he does present them as PEOPLE, not as diagnoses.
I loved Mel but I love every character in this novel. And I can’t wait to read what he does next.
