Who has a right to judge what is normal?

For 18 year old Maria Valentino it was her parents, it was her friends and it was the doctors who decided that she was no longer stable for the outside world. No one questioned that the man who put her in a mental institution for eight months was in fact a violent drunk, because unlike Maria people thought he was normal. 

No one questioned that her friends bullied their classmates on a daily basis to stay at the top of the social ladder, because that was normal.

The only time people started asking questions was when Maria finally snapped.

Then, she meets Mason Riley. Charming, handsome and confident. He was like a slap back to reality, and for the first time in years Maria finally felt like she was back in normality.

The only problem was that she met Mason when she was admitted to The Ledge Mental Institution. He had been bouncing from hospital to hospital since he was 12 years old, somewhere along the way the doctors branded him a Sociopath. That would explain the charm, his exceptional knack at manipulation and the remorse that he lacks to feel.

Yet, even with all of that Maria finds herself believing that Mason might actually be one of the most normal aspects of her life, because after all sanity is best judged by those who lack it.

That’s what he keeps telling her, and she almost started to believe him.



Ew. No. No one can be the next Michael Jackson. Simply because no one can go to his level. About the Kanye thing? I wholeheartedly believe that.
I know I should be paying attention to what she's trying to say, but I just love the mention of Rugby. Rugby is rarely mentioned where I live.): If it is, people think that it sucks.))):

Tf is this actually me. Like when you are diagnosed with depression I swear you feel so alone but you find yourself, realising that the way you're leading your life isn't what you want

I read this book last year and was like "oh wow that sucks" and then life bitch  slapped me in the facing. I lost my dad literally 2 days after Thanksgiving. Appreciate your parents kids. Nothing's permanent. 15 years old and just really wish my daddy could hold me again.
