While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction.

January First: A Child's Descent into Madness and Her Father's Struggle to Save Her - Michael Schofield

Dad's story of the struggle to get the appropriate diagnosis and support for his schizophrenic daughter.  The book adds a few incremental details to the story Michael Schofield has told widely through his blog, videos, and interviews. As is often the case with illness/disability memoirs, the pacing of the book is a bit choppy, moving too slowly with much detail in certain places, and glossing over other aspects of interest.

While publicizing Jani's story and providing a touch-point for families struggling with juvenile mental illness is valuable, I suggest that folks with limited time look for the interviews with Michale and YouTube videos of Jani rather than reading January First
