It is not easy by any means. On tv things seem really played down compared to this fathers raw account in this book. Paperback Verified Purchase. What a great great read! I got through it so fast and was so interested in the story that I did some online research after about the author and January.
Amazing book. Side note: This guy comes off like he is the only one who cares about his kid. He's just the one kicking himself. Sad story,. I bought this book after reading Michael Schofield's Huffington Post article, if only because I wanted to somehow support him financially for all of his troubles.
It was not an easy book to get through -- be warned, it is dark, filled with negativity, and even distressing. I ate a lot of chocolate while reading it. But you might have expected that anyway: If you're interested in the mental health of children and how our culture treats those afflicted with schizophrenia, I would definitely recommend it -- but be warned that it's not something that will leave you feeling hopeful and fulfilled.
Perfect insight into life as a family with mental illness. Having bipolar disorder myself I related so much to this family.
And as a parent my heart goes out to them. Very captivating, well written.
I can not imagine having the kind of patience January's parents had!! The journey becomes real for the reader. I haven't read anything like this. What this family lives through on a daily basis is amazing. I read this book in one day. I couldn't stop. I'm in awe of the honesty this father put down on paper. Glad he shared his story. This is a must read. Interesting true story. See all reviews.

The story of January Schofield, diagnosed at six with childhood schizophrenia. We can hold our breath and pray, but not look away. This modern parable may be the most compelling book you will ever read.
Schofield takes us on his journey with Jani, starting with his thoughts that Jani is simply a misunderstood genius to recognition that something is really wrong, to the ultimate diagnosis of schizophrenia, a very serious mental illness, even more so when it manifests in a child.
Schofield and his wife never give up. Their dedication and steadfastness are inspirational. Their story will be highly valued by the many families with a child with mental illness-indeed, by the many families who have any kind of struggle with their kids.
The book ends on a hopeful note with Jani in a better place, yet we recognize that the battle is likely not over. Read An Excerpt. Paperback —. Buy the Ebook: Add to Cart. Product Details.
