Review: A Danger to Herself and Others - Alyssa Sheinmel

A Danger to Herself and Others

Review: A Danger to Herself and Others - Alyssa Sheinmel - February 2019
Hannah has had her whole life planned right down to the small details, that is until she finds herself stuck in an institution. Her best friend is lying in a coma in the hospital and she has been accused of trying to kill her. So her best friend stole the guy she loved - Jonah, but they were playing a game and her friend fell, she definitely didn't push her. Now though she is being treated as crazy and being considered a danger to herself and others.  Hannah now must use her skills of persuasion that made her excellent in life to persuade the doctors that she is well enough to head back to the summer program and apply for colleges, as the only thing important to Hannah is her grades and whether she gets into an amazing college. During her stay at the ward, Hannah is roomed with a girl called Lucy who has an eating disorder as she is a ballet dancer.  During the stay, Lucy will have Hannah revealing her secrets and starting to confront the truth about what really happened that Summer with her roommate and soon Hannah will have her eyes cleared from the fog that has been following her for the past few years and hopefully be able to finally decipher reality from fantasy. A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa Sheinmel touches on the issues of Mental Illnesses and how it can sneak up on those who you least expect to and it pushes the reminder that it is alright to ask for help, asking doesn't make you any less of a person.
