Buy on Amazon

What if you woke up one day, living with a family member who had changed into an entirely different person? What if she were an older sibling you had always admired and strived to be like? And what if you were an insecure preteen when it all started? What would that do to your life?

Martha Graham-Waldon’s memoir entitled, Nothing Like Normal: Surviving a Sibling’s Schizophrenia, chronicles the trajectory of her sister’s thirty-year battle with schizophrenia. Two years younger, the author watched her beloved sister descend into madness, nearly pulling the author down with her into a shadowy and baffling black hole of despair.

This was not your normal read but it did keep me very interested. If you don’t know anyone with this horrible disease by the name of Schizophrenia, you have no idea what someone goes through. This book does give you an insight on what a person is faced with having this disease and watching someone you love having it.

I recommend reading this book, it will give you a new way to look at this particular disease.
