About the Book

Lucy wakes up in the coldness of a hospital room after another suicide attempt and realizes her life needs an urgent change. Having been caught up in a whirlwind of vices, self-loathing, and erratic behavior for twenty-one years, it is now time for Lucy to embark upon a new path. This riveting novel takes us alongside Lucy in her journey around the world to find her father, oblivious to the fact that her travels would lead her to encounter much more than her long-lost parent. A constant struggle between mental health issues and her desired recovery, Lucy gives voice to all those stories of suffering, fear, prejudice, and confusion that are silenced by stigma and rejection. Lucy is the outcast, the odd one out, whose thrilling adventures will move us and entertain us at an equal pace. But Lucy is not just the mad psychiatric patient, she is nothing more than a girl trying to become a happy woman.
