An ALA Best Book for Young Adults: A teenage girl fights to overcome depression with help from a rebellious friend. Outside her window, Grace hears a dove. The birdsong reminds her that there is a world outside her hospital room, that life is not always as confusing as it seems. It's a reminder she needs badly, because Grace's life has gotten pretty scrambled lately. After her father died, her world dissolved into blackness and she tried to find her way out with a razor blade. She survived and was treated with electroshock therapy, which only left her more mixed up than before. Now she is in a kinder place, trying to put herself back together, but aside from the dove outside her window, she cannot be sure what is real. Sometimes Grace hears her father's voice speaking to her. Sometimes she can't tell whether she is sleeping or awake. But Grace is a fighter, and with a little help, she will unscramble herself, no matter how long it takes.
