Summer was made for reading: carefree vacation days, sitting at the beach or by the pool, relaxing outside in a deck chair or hammock. I’ve been enjoying my summer reading time immersed in teen fiction, ranging from fantasy to books that delve into realistic explorations of characters' lives. I’ve read several books this summer that have met my reading needs, whether I’m looking for escape and entertainment or to get a window into someone else’s life.

Words on Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton

In Words on Bathroom Walls, by Julia Walton, Adam, now 16, has suffered from auditory and visual hallucinations for years. Only recently has he finally been diagnosed as schizophrenic. This diagnosis makes sense to Adam, who is accustomed to mobsters bursting into classrooms and firing machine guns at will and the naked man who follows him around and keeps him company sometimes—of course, these are things only he sees hears and experiences.

As well as finally receiving a diagnosis, Adam has also found himself in a clinical trial for a new drug to help with his symptoms. As part of the trial, Adam must be closely monitored to ensure that the medication is only having positive effects on him. The book is written as Adam’s diary entries to his therapist. His therapy sessions are a required part of the clinical trial, but Adam refuses to speak to the man. Instead, he pens answers to the various questions for the therapist to read later.
