Publisher Description

Lina had the idyllic childhood—until descending into mental chaos.

Caught in a chaotic world of her own making, Lina resorts to recording her teenage thoughts to make sense of her anguish. She shares her life obsessively with her sister and her friends, in millions of words eventually found by their father.

Part memoir, part fiction, the past and present events are Lina's direct experience through her eyes, faithfully condensed by her father. The future events—Lina's therapy and mature reflections—were added by the author and a senior psychologist with access to the source material.

Lost in the dark, Lina navigates the childhood evidence later found in her archives. But will her research open a pathway to love—or help her continue down the path of blame, false memories, and spite?

Through her own heart-wrenching words, the reader steps into Lina's broken inner world to experience firsthand the emotions, depression, obsessions, irrationality, angst, and ruthlessness of teenage borderline personality disorder.

Emo Reality is Lina—past, present, and when ready, future.
