When Jason Milwaukee's best friend, Sunshine, disappears from the face of the earth, the whole town, including Jason, starts searching for her. But the insistent voices in Jason's head won't let him get to the heart of the mystery-he's schizophrenic, and the voices make it hard to know what is real and what is not. As the chase becomes more panicked, Jason's meds start wearing off, and he is looking more and more guilty. But of what, exactly? Both brilliantly witty and intensely honest, this poignant novel draws upon the author's many years as an adolescent psychologist, but it's Vaught's powerful voice and expertly crafted mystery that will keep the pages turning.

Review:

Freaks Like Us is a compelling, superbly crafted story that will hook you and grab you from the first page. More than a book about mental illness written with an insider's knowledge, it is also a love story and a story written with love about young people on the outskirts of what the world calls normal. I urge you to read it * Francisco X Stork, author of 'Marcelo in the Real World' * I love this book. Susan Vaught has absolutely nailed this character, his pain, struggles and triumphs. Bravo! * Terry Trueman, Printz Honor author of Stuck in Neutral * Poignantly affirming of life and love even in the face of overwhelming loss, this is a haunting tragicomic drama of grief and renewal * Horn Book, starred review of 'Trigger' * Going Underground is full of compelling, fully realized characters (human and parrot alike) who try to muster the courage to move forward. Listed as one of 'Eight Books That Just Might Change Your Life' * Bookpage.com * Mental illness is in danger of becoming just another `charming personality quirk' in teen fiction among less talented authors clinging to Mark Haddon's coattails but Freaks Like Us by Susan Vaught is in a class of its own * Sunday Telegraph *
