72 Hour Hold Bebe Moore Campbell read online review & book description:

The New York Times Bestseller 

Trina is eighteen and suffers from bi-polar disorder, making her paranoid, wild, and violent. Frightened by her own child, Keri searches for help, quickly learning that the mental health community can only offer her a seventy-two hour hold. After these three days Trina is off on her own again.

Fed up with the bureaucracy and determined to save her daughter by any means necessary, Keri signs on for an illegal intervention known as The Program, a group of radicals who eschew the psychiatric system and model themselves after the Underground Railroad. In the upheaval that follows, she is forced to confront a past that refuses to stay buried, even as she battles to secure a future for her child. 

"A tightly woven, well-written story about mothers and daughters, highs and lows, ex-husbands and boyfriends.... Universally touching."
San Francisco Chronicle

    This was an amazing book that I couldn't stop reading. It puts life into perspective and opens your eyes to what others may be going through behind closed doors. Loved it

    I absolutely loved this book. Great ending and the way it was written, I felt as if I was there along the way. I know this book is not specifically about her personal situation, but similarities that I can almost picture the situation. I read the complete book on my iPhone, and I'm glad I purchased it!
