Footer Davis Probably is Crazy
Footer Davis' mom is bi-polar and just after a terrible accident at a neighbor's house - a murder, a fire, and 2 children missing - she goes into a manic state and is hospitalized. Footer is always worried that she is going crazy and when she starts having visions, hallucinations,or memories of the night of the fire she really thinks she is losing it. Was she there? Was her mother?
This was an interesting books that looks at mental illness in a straighforward, accurate way from the viewpoint of the child. The mystery was good and my "aha" came just before the main character's. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.
