Violet’s life is complicated by her bipolar disorder: she is aware of her outside world but has limited self-awareness. From her family and friends a portrait of Violet emerges of a young woman who has faced down the denial, anger, and depression of her bipolarity and who, despite her struggles, has bargained for her place in the world as a sister, daughter, and mother.
