Sliding into the Rabbit HoleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Would She Ever Return?
On the surface, Alice Laxton seems no different from any other college girl: bright, inquisitive, excited about the life ahead of her. But for years, a genetic time bomb has been ticking away. Because of AliceÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s near-genius intelligence, teachers and counselors have always made excuses for her ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“little idiosyncrasies.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â But during a stress-filled senior year at college, a new world of voices, visions, and unexplainable ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“knowledgeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â causes Alice to begin to lose her grip on reality.
As AliceÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s schizophrenia progresses, she experiences a disturbing religious ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“awakening,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â believing that God and angels and demons are speaking to her. When others attempt to intervene, Alice is subjected to a wide range of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“treatmentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â even more frightening and painful than her illness.
Powerfully raw and brutally honest, Finding Alice is a story of individual suffering and hope, a familyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s shared ordeal, and a search for true mental and spiritual healing.
