This is How I Find Her by Sara Polsky, 260 pages, read by Sarah, on 12/13/2013

 How would you like to be solely in charge of your manic-depressive mother at 16?  What would you do if you came home to find her passed out with a bottle of spilled pills all around her?  Sophie has had an interesting life dealing with and managing her mom’s ups and downs.  At this point, her mother is hospitalized and Sophie has to stay with other family.  But the freedom that comes with her new situation makes her wonder….does she really want her mom to come back home?

This is a heart-wrenching story with strong-willed characters and a realization that sometimes we can’t do it all on our own.
