A powerful and devastating YA novel about the redemptive power of truth and healing. Tamar is admitted to Lime Grove, a psychiatric hospital for teenagers, where she's asked endless questions. Will you tell us what happened? How do you feel, on a scale of one to ten? But there's one question Tamar can't - won't - answer: What happened to her friend Iris? A uniquely powerful, devastating novel of friendship, fragility and guilt. Stunningly literary YA about one girl's mental illness and the redemptive power of truth and healing. A shocking, moving and sometimes darkly funny depiction of life on a psychiatric ward, drawn from the true experience of the author.
