Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten (#11)
Max is a troubled little boy with various mental problems. His mother, Danielle, a single mother and successful lawyer, is at her wit's end, not knowing how to help him. She decides to place him in a facility in Iowa that is reputed to be helpful to mentally ill young people. After arriving there, problems only become more complex until Danielle finds herself as well as Max in deep trouble.
This book was a little too wordy, a little too dragged out, a little too far fetched. It is a first book for the author, and I would like to see her progress as a writer.
