"In Greenwich Village in the middle of summer, 15-year-old Sally Greenberg unexpectedly suffered a manic break. The police escorted her home, and her parents committed her to a psychiatric unit, where she received diagnosis and medication to help her cope with bipolar disorder. Her father, author Michael Greenberg, evocatively describes the family's experiences during this time - Sally's behaviour, his wife's down-to-earth response, his own thoughts and fears, and the other patients, family members and staff in the hospital. Hurry Down Sunshine is an engaging and heartfelt account of what it's like to cope with mental illness in the family."

Heartbreaking but unsentimental, the author chronicles the summer his daughter was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I have read the book and listened to the audio version and have come away with a better understanding of this devastating disease.
I agree, it was painful to read. A heartbreaking parent's perspective.
very painful read -- well researched
