Product Description
When We Collided is a contemporary realistic novel -- a summer romance between two teens in a small California beach town struggling with mental illness and grief. This story focuses on a girl with bipolar disorder and a boy dealing with the death of his father and his widowed mother's depression. The story explores these mature themes as well as detailed symptoms of bipolar disorder such as impulsivity, reckless overspending, hypersexuality, unusually high energy, inability to concentrate, and insomnia. There's occasional strong language and descriptions of sexual behavior/intimacy, but most of it is fade-to-black. The author provides resources and a launching point to discuss mental illness with teen readers.
