Book: Freaks Like Us
Starting off I will be reviewing a book called Freaks Like Us written by Susan Vaught. I just read it not all that long ago so it's pretty fresh in my memory. The story is a mystery novel about a teenage boy who has schizophrenia whose best friend goes missing in action. Throughout the book, he struggles with anxiety, hallucinations, and getting bullied by other students. Some characters have a hard time believing what he is saying and even blame him for his friends disappearance. The author does a great job explaining what it's like to live with a disability in a world full of people who assume the worst of you. I find the witter to be a truly inspiring person knowing that she is a successful writer also on the autism spectrum. She's written another good book called Me and Sam-Sam Handle the Apocalypse which follows a young girl on the spectrum. I have several of Susan's books but Freaks Like Us is definitely my favorite out of all of them.
