Imagine finding out, when you are still only a child, that you are looking at the world differently from other people. That is exactly the predicament that the author found herself in when she was diagnosed with schizophrenia. An outsider. Different. And yet, not always so different... Now a woman, this account of her experiences and inner thoughts and feelings serves to illustrate that her desires and dreams are not so very different from everyone else's. Brainchild is exactly that: a child who, by a stroke of fate, will always look at the world from a different mind's eye. That when she grew up she could still forgive, when sometimes the world is cruel, is a testament to her humanity.
