May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we’ve reviewed a number of titles over the years that we thought were exceptional portrayals of the experience of mental illness and related difficulties. As we all know, reading a good book can make us feel less alone–and, honestly, sometimes that’s the one thing you need in order not to go over the edge.
