As a teenager, Adam was diagnosed with schizophrenia. This beautifully illustrated children's book reveals Adam's struggle to cope with his mental illness and the way Carla, his sister, learns to be patient with him, by making sure her friends understand her brother's illness. Carla expresses empathy and compassion for her brother and those like him. This book will help children and adults begin to dismiss the stigma associated with mental illness and can also be used as a foundation to talk to young people about invisible diseases such as schizophrenia.
