Review of A Madness So Discreet

"A Madness So Discreet" by Mindy McGinnis: Title: Madness so Discreet

Author: Mindy McGinnis

Chapters: 37 plus epilogue

Pages: 376

Genre: Historical fiction

Rating: 3.5 stars

     A Madness so Discreet is a teen historical fiction novel about Grace Mae a young woman who gets sent to an asylum. However she isn't insane instead she's there because she hides a secret. A secret once gone will find her back home. Back to her place in society. See feels safer in the asylum.  A young doctor Thornfollow see's that she has a sharp mind and offers her a safe haven in turn for help.  

     This was different than most teen historical fiction that I've read before.  Despite it being different it was a fairly informative read. I can't say that it was an enjoyable read. This is only because of the nature of the storyline.   It's not  a quick read it's a deep read. That will cause you to think. But that's not always a bad thing. Sometimes it's good that books make you think.
