Mental Health Day Recommendations

from Rosalie Warren on An Awfully Big Blog Adventure....


This is [Rosalie Warren's] list.

  • The Illustrated Mum by Jacqueline Wilson
  • A Note of Madness by Tabitha Suzuma
  • A Voice in the Distance by Tabitha Suzuma
  • My Mum's from Planet Pluto by Gwyneth Rees.
  • Red Shift by Alan GarnerĀ 
  • Boneland by Alan Garner (though I'm told this is not strictly a children's/YA book)
  • ***Mental by Sherry Ashworth
  • Girl, Aloud by Emily Gale

*** Mental (Warren observes) is actually about schizophrenia, I realise now I've read it, but I'm leaving it on the list as it's a very good book.
