Mental health memoirs are a popular category, and every story is different. In Unhinged, Anna Berry recounts her own mental illness, her fight back to a normal life, and her experiences with mental illness in her family. From her mother to her brother and herself, she illustrates the way mental illness can invade not just one life, but the lives of everyone living through it. Unhinged offers not only a message of hope and healing, but also illustrates the smaller triumphs and tragedies that come along the way.
