Zachry’s memoir is a roller-coaster of emotions that describe the heartbreak and trauma of childhood separation, a devastating sexual assault in college, and her struggles with PTSD and bipolar II. Zachry, a mental health advocate and blogger, learns how to find her spark in life, while navigating a new normal and listening to her unique needs. It’s also the story of a devoted and loving partner, the friends and family who didn’t give up on Zachry, and the medical professionals who guided and believed in her. Zachry’s memoir (which takes place in Malaysia, Japan, and the U.S.) covers young-adult growing pains through motherhood, which she navigates while preserving her own mental health and learning how to parent her gifted child. It will be relatable to many readers who have dealt with similar struggles.
VERDICT Zachry’s memoir (a heavy read that warrants content warnings) is valuable for its articulation and contextualization of mental health issues. Recommended for all general collections.
