Highly Illogical Behavoir

index.aspxThis teen read focuses on agoraphobia, the fear of being in open or public places. Solomon Reed is sixteen and has not left his house for three years, ever since his panic attacks at school reached their worst. Enter Lisa,a classmate, who is determined to win a full scholarship to Woodlawn University, the school with the second best psychology program in the country, because she just KNOWS she can get into the program. In order to do so, Lisa needs to write an essay about her experience with mental illness, and she decides that she will cure Solomon of his agoraphobia and document it to win the scholarship. Lisa befriends Sol through a letter, convincing him to let her visit him, and the story unfolds. John Corey Whaley utilizes themes of friendship, homosexuality, and betrayal to draw the reader in, and I found this to be an enjoyable read.
