Notă biografică

Susan Vaught is the author of the highly acclaimed novels Trigger, My Big Fat Manifesto, Going Underground, as well as Oathbreaker, which she co-authored with her son, JB Redmond. She is also a practicing psychologist and lives with her family and many rescued animals in Kentucky, USA.


Freaks Like Us is a compelling, superbly crafted story that will hook you and grab you from the first page. More than a book about mental illness written with an insider's knowledge, it is also a love story and a story written with love about young people on the outskirts of what the world calls normal. I urge you to read it
I love this book. Susan Vaught has absolutely nailed this character, his pain, struggles and triumphs. Bravo!
Poignantly affirming of life and love even in the face of overwhelming loss, this is a haunting tragicomic drama of grief and renewal
Going Underground is full of compelling, fully realized characters (human and parrot alike) who try to muster the courage to move forward. Listed as one of 'Eight Books That Just Might Change Your Life'
Mental illness is in danger of becoming just another 'charming personality quirk' in teen fiction among less talented authors clinging to Mark Haddon's coattails but Freaks Like Us by Susan Vaught is in a class of its own
