When Elephants FlyBook - 2018
"T. Lily Decker is a high school senior with a twelve-year plan: avoid stress, drugs, alcohol and boyfriends, and take regular psych quizzes administered by her best friend, Sawyer, to make sure shes not developing schizophrenia. Genetics are not on Lilys side. When she was seven, her mother, who had paranoid schizophrenia, tried to kill her. And a secret has revealed that Lilys odds are even worse than she thought. Still, theres a chance to avoid triggering the mental health condition, if Lily can live a careful life from ages eighteen to thirty, when schizophrenia most commonly manifests. But when a newspaper internship results in Lily witnessing a mother elephant try to kill her three-week-old calf, Swifty, Lily cant abandon the story or the calf. With Swifty in danger of dying from grief, Lily must choose whether to risk everything, including her sanity and a first love, on a desperate road trip to save the calfs life, perhaps finding her own version of freedom along the way."--Amazon.
