About the book

Together with another patient, Poppy plots to gain freedom. But in a world where everything’s upside-down, is she crazy enough to upset the system?
Review by October Books reading group:
A good book club choice with lots of points to discuss about the way society deals with mental illness. Funny, sad and thought provoking.
