    La luna no está por Nathan Filer (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: Both books do a great job of helping the reader understand what it's like to experience a mental illness. Whilst neither shy away from the suffering that accompanies this both are ultimately hopeful books.

Neal Shusterman never ceases to amaze me. In the last 3 months I have read 4 of his novels and they are all so different. I like an author who isn't stuck in a rut and S seems to have a very braod view when it comes to writing fiction. In this novel, he delves close to his heart to look at the tragic consequences of mental illness/psychosis in young teenage boys after having a son who suffers from mental illness. The book is told in two parts, the first is Caden's journey on a ship with various strange companions (most distortions of real people), the second is what is happening in Caden's world is really happening. As a parent who has known the devastation of psychosis on a teenage child, I can say that he writes with great sensitivity but also pulls no punches - there is no glossing over the truth - that Caden is seriously ill and needs help and support, even if he doesn't think so. This book reminded me also a little of the L:ife of Pi in some aspects. ( )

A book that kept getting better as I read. I really liked it when the metaphorical scenes on the ship started coinciding with the scenes in the hospital. Had some pretty intense emotional spots towards the end as the main character starts building relationships and how those relationships relate to characters on the ship. Of the three Shusterman books I’ve read I think this is his best one certainly the most heartfelt and written from personal experience. A great book to build empathy in regards to those suffering with mental illness. I thought his descriptions of The main character, Kayden, starting to become ill were intense and made me worry about having a sympathetic reaction. If ever using this form talk there is a great paragraph on page 129 to use. ( )

A very good book. But very confusing. I try again later to reread ( )

Wow. This book kind of blew me away. I especially love it when a YA novel gets me in the feels like this one, because I typically find it difficult to relate to YA protagonists.
The Goodreads description of this book, which I imagine was taken from the back of the book (I read the ebook version), is terrible. It would definitely not make me want to read this book - I read a short review of it somewhere (in VOYA I think...), which made me really want to pick it up.
It's a very interesting and hard-hitting depiction of what a person with mental illness goes through, when they break from reality and live in some other world. It's based on the experiences of Shusterman's son, who began showing symptoms of mental illness at 15, the same age as Caden in the book. Caden's symptoms begin with paranoia - he thinks there's a kid at school who wants to kill him, or that his parents are impostors. As he floats in and out of what the rest of us agree is reality, he sees these thoughts as definitely true or as most likely not true. As he gets worse, and as his parents decide to hospitalize him, Caden lives on a pirate ship with a metaphorical crew who are slowly revealed as versions of people he interacts with in the hospital.
This depiction of mental illness, hallucinations and paranoia, is anything but positive. It is jarring and terrifying, and Caden suffers. It's not until the end of the book that he begins to realize how his family is suffering too. I imagined this book might be triggering for someone who has gone through similar experiences, and in reading other's reviews, found a few who have said they were triggered. But none who regretting reading it. This is a powerful story, one that humanizes people with mental illness while showing how hard it can be. At one point, Caden talks about how it would be better to be dead, because people put dead kids on pedestals and sweep mentally ill kids under the rug. Having struggled through the mental health machine and knowing people still fighting through it, I know we need to do better. In the end, Caden found a drug cocktail that works for him and goes home, but acknowledges that he'll be back in that chasm again in the future. There's no escaping his illness - he can learn to manage it, but it's there with him for the rest of his life, and it is unpredictable.
So read this book, everyone. ( )
