Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley

Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley

I am not really sure how to feel about this book, it started out with an ablest hero-complex mentality when Lisa decides to go and “save” Solomon from himself. Solomon has not left the house since middle school and as high school senior looking towards college, Lisa is looking for the perfect essay and she plans on using Solomon. This book has a lot of good moments, but it is tainted by the ablest aspects. They sort of discuss it, but I feel that it is glossed over a little to nicely. At the same time this book does a great job of showing mental illness to not just be someone who is typically seen as crazy, but as someone who functions differently in the world. This also shows not only how it affects the person with the illness, but how it affects their family as well. Throughout the book there was also a love triangle, yet it really added to the story instead of just getting in the way (which I feel that they often do).These negative and positive portrayals lead to a very conflicted feeling about this book as a whole. I am not sure if I can fully tell someone “Go read it!” but at the same time I feel that I learned some very valuable points about mental illness.
