Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
An unforgettable memoir of a teenager's unjust incarceration in a mental hospital. At the age of fifteen, Daphne Scholinski was put in a mental hospital for what her psychiatrist called "failure to identity as a sexual female." The hospital gave her a diagnosis that was brand-new to the medical books: Gender Identity Disorder. The years that should have been Daphne's typical high school experience instead consisted of periods of seclusion and physical restraint, frequent does of sedatives, and the close company of people who were truly crazy.
"A notable book. Scholinski is a psychiatric memoirist with a powerful voice and a mission: to debunk doctors who continue to diagnose gender identity disorders."
"What keeps Scholinski sane--and makes the book as entertaining as it is horribly informative--is her sense of irony and black humor about a medical system that can't seem to do anything right."
