Summary

Natalie Roman isn’t much for the spotlight. But performing A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a stately old theatre in Savannah, Georgia, beats sitting alone replaying mistakes made in Athens. Fairy queens and magic on stage, maybe a few scary stories backstage. And no one in the cast knows her backstory.

Except for Lucas—he was in the psych ward, too. He won’t even meet her eye. But Nat doesn’t need him. She’s making friends with girls, girls who like horror movies and Ouija boards, who can hide their liquor in Coke bottles and laugh at the theater’s ghosts. Natalie can keep up. She can adapt. And if she skips her meds once or twice so they don’t interfere with her partying, it won’t be a problem. She just needs to keep her wits about her.

What I think of it

This book follows Natalie back into society after she’s been released of a psych ward.

I am so glad that more books handle the mental health subject and most of the times I absolutely love it. But this time I only got disappointed..

Don’t get me wrong, the characters are realistic and it handles the subject in a realistic way. But it tries to deal with too many things at once and I felt like the ending was rushed up.

If the book had 100 – 150 more pages to take the time with the all the different situations it would have been worth 4 maybe even 5 stars.
