Highly Illogical Behavior

Volume Thirty Two in the Books That Matter Series

"It's like on Star Trek: The Next Generation, really. We're just floating in space trying to figure out what it means to be human."
-Excerpt from Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley

Solomon Reed is sixteen years old, a big fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, likes the water, has a family who loves him, and suffers from a panic disorder that has kept him inside his house for three years--ever since he had an episode that drove him into the fountain at school.

Lisa Praytor has her sights set on the second best college psychology program in the country, but to pay for it, she needs to apply for a full scholarship and write an essay about her personal experience with mental illness. And Lisa knows what--or rather who--she will write about: Solomon Reed, the boy from her school who she hasn't seen since his breakdown at the fountain.

After tracking down Solomon's mom, Lisa finds a way into his life and soon so does her boyfriend, Clark. But as the three of them get closer, things get complicated and life might not be the same as any of them once knew it.

Author, John Corey Whaley, takes readers into the life of an agoraphobic teen and the struggles that come with that. Highly Illogical Behavior is the young adult novel about mental illness, friendship, love, loss, and the unpredictability of life.
