Book tie in/reccomendation

My research ties into the book I was reading, because one of the main characters has a psychotic disorder. The family is trying to cooperate with this transition, but it is very difficult for the family because it happened out of nowhere. This book was interesting to see how someone would deal with a family member who suffers from a psychotic disorder, but i did not care for the writing style of this book. I would recommend this book to someone who likes short and interesting reads.
