This was a beautifully written book about Matthew whose brother Simon died when they were little boys and Matthew is now 19 and living with schizophrenia. Matthew "sees" his brother in the ocean tide, the wind, the birthday candle flames and when he tries to reach out for him he only succeeds in attempting to kill himself. The book is written in different fonts and writing styles with pictures and drawings all adding to the frame of mind Matthew is in while he is writing the book. I guess I didn't say that...that the book is written by Matthew, from his perspective. It takes you through his thought processes on any given day in the life of a person with mental illness. I couldn't put the book down. It just flowed so beautifully.
