    Saint Jude (Dawn Wilson)

    Rate this media item:

    • Taylor Drysdale, 18, suffers from bipolar disorder. During her senior year, she is reluctantly admitted to “Brick House,” the outpatient program at St. Jude Hospital, where she meets other teens coping with mental illness. Together with the staff, they form a kind of family, and the teens learn to deal with conflicting attitudes and personalities. As the members prove themselves “worthy” and leave Brick House, they must confront their worst fear of all: surviving in the outside world where there are no counselors to cushion the blow. The novel focuses on the characters’ interactions and on how, as Taylor comes to terms with her disorder and her family problems, she becomes ready to move out and move on. Similar to Susanna Kaysen’s Girl, Interrupted (Vintage, 1994) and Wally Lamb’s She’s Come Undone (WSP, 1993), this is an excellent read with well-developed characters.

    This book is not really about SI. It is
    more about someone with Bipolar
    Disorder. It was an interesting read,
    but not helpful for those of us who SI.
