The Memory Palace by Mira Bartok. A hauntingly beautiful book about a girl raised by a schizophrenic mother. Highly recommended.
This book impacted my life in more ways that one could imagine...such an amazing read!
If you are able to get through A Child Called It or any of Dave Pelzer's continued life stories - this is a great addition. This is Dave's brother's story from his perspective. Intriguing yet still heartbreaking.
