TERRI CHENEY'S "THE DARK SIDE OF INNOCENCE" (REVIEW)
This book is more dark with only a splash of innocence. It's not hard to understand how a child could be inflicted with such a horrible disease as being bipolar though, and Teri's words make you understand just how hard it can be for a child in which this condition has not been recognized. This book gave me chills, and made me realize how a hidden monster like this could exist among innocence. Terri's story was written with acute honesty which I found refreshing. There are too many times that authors put a cap on their words and don't let their words flow.
I found the truth of her story interesting, compelling, and full of good information that will help other children around the world. This book is one you don't want to miss out on, it's haunting but in a good way, a story you won't soon forget.
