Brain on Fire
by Susannah Cahalan

Review #1
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
At 24 years old, Susannah Cahalan is an ambitious dedicated reporter for the New York Post. She is seemingly healthy until little things start to go awry and her health starts to deteriorate. Doctors are perplexed at what is wrong and suggest she has mono, but later her seizures prove otherwise. She starts having hallucinations and is admitted to the hospital where she will barely remember the next month. After many tests, doctors diagnose her with an auto-immune disease that is essentially her body attacking her brain. The diagnosis is only the first step. There is still a long way to recovery ahead.
