Book Suggestions - March 6th 2017, 10:15 PM

I'm looking for fictional books about mental illness. Any suggestions?

I have read most of Ellen Hopkins, Cheryl Rainfield, and Speak by Anderson, as well as Beneath the Skin by Kyla Stone, The Summoning series, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Girl, Interrupted, and It's Kind of a Funny Story.

Anything other than the above that you suggest, please? :P

I need distraction

1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. I didn't like it but other people have. It's primarily about self harm but there are some references/scenes with substance abuse.
Under rose tainted skies Louise Gornall. I have not read it but it sounds good. It's about agoraphobia.

Laurie halse anderson has some other books such as impossible knife of a memory and Wintergirls that you might like.
