The unreliable narrator is showcased in this quick, thrilling read. Hannah has been characterized as a danger to herself and others, but "obviously" there has been a huge mistake because she is perfectly healthy. What happened to her friend Agnes was just an unfortunate accident. As Hannah's perception of reality slides, the reader gets an idea of how damaged Hannah really is.

A Danger to Herself and Others is a great book for if you want to know more about mental health. Hannah tends to make up people in her head and we think they're real until we find out they're not which is a real page turner. The book is definitely darker than other fictional mental books I've read. -Anonymous

This likable and unreliable narrator (Hannah) tells her story from behind the walls of a mental institution and you can't stop reading. What really happened to Agnes? Where is Jonah? Why do they give her a roommate if she really is a "danger to others?" So many questions and as the narrative unfolds you learn more about Hannah and gain a better understanding of what it is like to live with mental illness. It is a bit terrifying to see our mental health system from that vantage point. Do books like this and "Gone Girl" make only child families look like breeding grounds for impaired mental health?
