The Boy Between is powerful, emotional, and most importantly, real. Josh (aka Josiah) and Amanda definitely have distinct voices in this - and that's a good thing. You get to see the story from both sides - the parent who only wants the best for their kid, and the kid who is struggling at times. Both sides are full of emotion, and the tale they tell together resonates with truth more than one of us has faced. A must-read for anyone who might be struggling or knows someone who is struggling.

The Boy Between is a well-written non fiction which addresses one boy's/man's fight with depression.

While discussing the earliest symptoms, I can relate to the mother and to the son. As I young girl, I suffered with severe depression brought on by various factors. I can relate o the feeling of hopelessness and no self-worth. However, unlike Josh, my escape was reading and reading came very easy to me. I too felt intimidated, and shy, in groups of more than two or three.

I feel those of us who are sensitive to the feelings of others and are hurt when betrayed or ridiculed, are the prime candidates for depression.

Unlike Josh, my firm belief f Life Eternal, is what kept me from taking my own life, many times. I feel bad for those who do not have the same deep belief in God and that this earth-life is but a tiny part in forever.

The mother had a very happy childhood in a large family. I tend to feel there is less inclination toward suicide with children in a close, large family situation. However, I do feel the causes of depression vary as much as there are individuals with this issue.

With this book, the authors' goals are to make the public aware of early signs of depression. The book addresses, the need of compassion and not judging. Also, the drugs for depression is another controversial subject. Like Josh mentioned, the drugs can make one sleepy, "spacey" and is a temptation when one is feeling low. Also, the authors emphasized the need of more help and awareness with this illness.

Although, Amanda's writing was interesting, along with her insights, I was mostly impressed with Josh's words. He was very poetic is the description of past feelings. the reader could feel the impact of his words. It was very interesting in reading about their relationship and challenges throughout years. They conclude with helpful tips.

I was gifted this book with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review. ( )

I've never read a book like this. I occasionally read memoirs and non-fiction books, experiencing a peek into someone else's life and love from a distance. This one gives a different experience. It's raw. It's real. And it reaches the core.

Depression is a sad and all-encompassing foe. I know a couple people that have mild depression, but the kind that Amanda and Josh reveal is so deep. With alternating POVs, mother and son express their stories in their own words and emotions, giving a well-rounded, deeply moving experience.

The turmoil and darkness family members go through when a loved one suffers from this mental illness is evident in this book. They frantically and tirelessly search for a way to lift their loved one from contemplating death.

I encourage anyone who suffers with depression, or knows or loves someone who does, to read this book. It contains helpful resources that could literally be life-changing.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher ( )
