Sandie Willabout this book: About eight years ago, I asked my dad if he ever saw anything creepy while he worked short periods at psychiatric hospitals. I wanted to see if I could write dark and was looking for some ideas. Well, did I ever get an idea! He told me he found two human cages hidden away in the attic. One was pink and one was blue—like nursery colors. He also told me rich families would pay to keep their family "embarrassments" locked away and described some of his work day.
Though completely fictional, this is a story about Jeannie Kynde, a young woman who finds herself locked away in one of those cages. Her father blames her for her mother's death and will stop at nothing to keep her there. And the hospital personnel are not following the rules. She's tortured by old treatments and a vindictive nurse. No one will believe she's sane. And no one is coming to save her. Jeannie must find a way to escape, before she's imprisoned forever and loses her entire future.
This book is a psychological thriller that has won multiple awards including first place in the 2018 Florida Writers Association Royal Palm Literary Awards for Young Adult/New Adult fiction.
