Well written and eye opening; I'm glad Daphne survived to tell us all her story.

I thought this book jumped around quite a bit and the time frames were kind of all over. It was interesting to see how then this was looked at as a disorder and rebelling behavior compared to today it is not uncommon. It was also interesting how they didn't seem to realize part of the problem was home life, it was as though they blamed her for her home life. Intriguing to see how the different institutions ran.

Daphne spent most of her teen years in a mental institution (or rather, several) due to gender nonconformity, among other issues. It blows my mind that people can just send their kids away because they are out of control and hope that someone else can just "fix" them. She is lucky that she didn't end up with bigger issues because she spent formative time with all these people who had real mental health issues. Infuriating.
