1 review for Crazy: Memoir of a Mom Gone Mad

  1. Shannon Moroney, Bestselling Author of Through the Glass & Out of the Shadows

    Charise Jewell is a brilliant writer who takes the reader behind her eyes to see and feel the terror—and the beauty—of living with mental illness. It does what the best memoirs do: comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. A true must-read!
