Couldn't put it down!
"Existing is an accomplishment. It may seem like we're putting forth the minimal effort by doing the basics and going through the motions, but that's not the case." - Trace, (Chapter Twenty-Six)
Brittany, who copes with anxiety and depression, and Trace, who copes with depression, navigate the beginning their romantic relationship in Book 1 of this series. This novel illustrates the obstacles of a relationship while offering the reader a rare glimpse into the everyday world of coping with mental health issues. Brittany and Trace's story will continue in Book 2, which will be released later this year.
What I love most about Lindsay Paige is that she takes such delicate care and compassion with her stories. I love Lindsay's way of writing about mental health issues in a way that is simple and meaningful to the distressing nature of anxiety and depression, which is often internalized. The above quote from the book really helps the reader understand the illness beyond the stereotypical portrayal. Her writing is comforting and really captures the struggle of coping with anxiety and depression within a romantic relationship.
I highly recommend 'Driving Me Mad' and will be eagerly waiting for Book 2!
