Too Bright to Hear Too Loud to See by Juliann Garey

Don't turn off the lights: You won't be able to put down this exhilarating debut novel by Juliann Garey (an MC contributor), whose chapters dangle impossible-to-resist carrots at every turn. Plot notes: Hollywood studio exec Greyson Todd has a secret he's kept for 20 years: He's bipolar. When he gets tired of hiding his illness, he decides to leave his job and family to travel the globe — for a decade. Beautiful mind: Told over a period of twelve 30-second electric-shock treatments, Garey's exploration of mental illness is brave and touching, and will shake you to the core.
