Review ~~ My Friends Are All Strange by Margaret Lesh
My Friends Are All Strange
My friends are all strange.
Right now I’m living at Brookside, a place for people like me. I’ve met a kitty girl, a brooding beautiful boy, one who can’t be touched, and others. My new friends. Strange people. People like me.
I’ve always been different, but lately, more so. My hands sometimes don’t seem to be attached to the rest of me. I cut up all of my clothes. I’m hot, so hot, all of the time. If I sleep, a wizard haunts every dream. I don’t sleep. Sometimes I want to run, but where do you run to when you’re trying to escape your own mind? I don’t know if I’ll ever be the same. I’m smart. I’m nice, sometimes. I just want to be normal(ish). But, right now, my friends are all strange… Like me.
Dark, funny, snarky, seventeen-year-old Becca struggles to cope with mental illness in My Friends Are All Strange, the gripping contemporary young adult companion novel to Normalish.

DAWN’S 4.25 STAR REVIEW
17 year old Becca is literally losing her mind! Lack of sleep and school pressure has lead her to have a mental breakdown. After having an embarrassing and traumatic breakdown in school, she ultimately ends up in a mental institution. Surrounded by “Strange” teens like herself. I loved all the kids. Each of their stories tugged at my heart. Becca slowly realizes it’s ok not be “normal.” Her road to recovery is not easy, but it is eye opening. Lesh totally takes us in to the mind of a mentally sick teen and shows us just how easy it is to lose control. Becca’s story is so relatable because it could happen to anyone.
Margaret Lesh’s writing is very descriptive and captivating. I can not wait to read more from her…
