BRAIN ON FIRE- MY MONTH OF MADNESS Susannah Cahalan is a reporter and book reviewer at the New York Post.

Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan // Susannah Cahalan’s memoir was my pick for ‘a book I previously abandoned’ for the MMD Reading Challenge. I read this book back in 2010, but I only made it halfway through. The story of a 24-year-old New York Post reporter’s horrifying descent into madness frightened me. But this time around, Cahalan’s story hooked me. Incredibly brave and brilliantly-executed, I am happy I gave it a second chance!
