Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This audio book narrated by Robbie Daymond & Julia Whelan nailed the main characters of Lisa and Solomon. Lisa is a positive extrovert, involved in many clubs, dating Clark, and obsessed with the study of psychology and going to the 2nd best college with a full scholarship. All she has to do is nail her admission essay and that is where her "highly illogical behavior" cooks up the idea of "saving" Solomon who is agoraphobic and had not left his house in three years. Solomon is an especially lovable teen dealing with his mental illness with his very supportive parents and highly positive and honest grandmother. As Lisa becomes Solomon's friend, she is convinced she can cure him, even though her boyfriend, Clark is totally against her subterfuge. I loved and rooted for all the characters in this book; Whaley constructs such a stunning story about mental illness, friendship, and family. I still have many questions and would love to see a sequel - will Solomon make progress? will Lisa and Clark stay together? where will Lisa go to college? what will happen to Solomon's family?
