The sequel to STIM…an Aspie new adult contemporary novel set in an earthquake zone.
Chloe is different. She has Asperger’s Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder and probably a few other inconvenient conditions as well. She’s a quirky, resourceful and clever psychology student, but her world is literally about to be shaken apart. A devastating earthquake sparks a chain of events that spiral her life out of control. She’s off her meds. Her oddly-named cat is missing. She doesn’t know what she wants out of life any more. Misfortune and uncertainty don’t mix well with bundles of energy and Chloe’s tendency to ignore consequences. It’s as if mayhem and trouble are her constant companions.
Will Chloe be able to cope with the earth-shaking events that rock her world?
"I didn't like change, but it is much easier to get use to when it is drawn out slowly like some kind of organized chaos, instead of happening all at once, unpredictable and confronting."
Chloe has aspergers, bipolar as well as many other things. After a earthquake caused her home to crash down, Chloe found it hard to find the control that helped her remain calm. Now she lost the pills to the damage and is on a high that can cause her life to go from bad to worse.
"The way I see things is like though a kaleidoscope-disjointed and broken, ever changing, yet somehow beautiful in a structured way."
Wow, I really loved this book. It was humorous and very fun to read. I loved how this book can really show others how it would feel to be an aspie as well as having Bipolar. So in a way its both entertaining and educating for those who don't know much about asperger syndrom and bipolar. Watching how things played out for Chloe was like watching an accident in slow motion if that makes any sense. I loved her character she was interesting and very smart. I feel like this is the type of book that everyone should read, I found myself loving this book and think you readers will too. 5 of 5 stars!
