9780983828976: A Vision of Neon

A Vision of Neon is a story of two friends – one who survives the complex years of adolescence and one who does not – and the unconditional love and commitment between these young girls. Wild, sharp-tongued red-head Kelsey embodies the confidence that her shy and quiet best friend, the story’s narrator, only dreams of. But as time passes, Kelsey’s seeming confidence and acts of teenage rebellion become overshadowed by day-long crying spells, invented stories of fictitious friends and thin slashes of scab that mark her skin. In high school, Kelsey descends into mental illness, while the narrator attempts to maintain a normal teenage life, despite continuing efforts to support her suicidal friend. However, both girls must ultimately face one difficult fact: regardless of their longings, Kelsey’s sickness has a debilitating stranglehold on them both.

From the Back Cover:

"Propelled along with a novel's pacing, and sustained by astonishing language, Angela M. Graziano's memoir, A Vision of Neon, grips you on the first page and never lets go. Graziano invites readers into the sanctity and intimacy of a friendship between two girls, a type of relationship overlooked in much of literature.  Here, Graziano delves deep into the exquisite yet troubled bonds that hold these two friends together until, abruptly, these bonds are severed. As its title promises, this memoir glows as bright as neon in its emotional authenticity and intensity." -Sue William Silverman, author, Love Sick: One Woman's Journey through Sexual Addiction

"Angela M. Graziano's provocative, beautifully written and gut wrenching memoir illuminates the intensely complicated consequences of one young woman's mental illness...mesmerizing from beginning to end. Unforgettable." - R.A. Rycraft, Nonfiction Editor, Serving House Journal
