He presents the stories of emotionally disturbed children as they struggle to make it throughout each day. This book presents the two classic stories of Lisa and David and Jordi along with the story of Little Ralphie and the Creature. David: Is intelligent, with extraordinary abilities in math, physics, and chess. He is passionately interested in clocks but cannot bear to be touched and is petrified of germs and human contact. He suffers from overwhelming panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive behavior. Lisa: A schizophrenic who must constantly speak in singsong rhymes to avoid losing herself to Muriel--her moody, brooding, scowling, silent other self. Jordi: Schizophrenic, with autistic tendencies. He's afraid of garbage cans, all garbage cans, because he believes them to be ears. Ears that will hear him. Only his "jiggler"--a doorknob tied to a long string--can offer him any comfort or protection. Little Ralphie: Actue schizophrenic reaction--catatonic type. Ralphie hides in alternate realties to escape his unbearable pain."@en ;
