Novel "Chameleon" Portrays Teenager's Experience With SAD

By November 9, 2009

Follow me on:

Fifteen-year-old Jordan Taylor Brown knows what it is like to suffer with social anxiety disorder (SAD). Having suffered with the disorder since she was a toddler, Brown has written a fictional account based on her experience with the disorder. The feelings, thoughts and reactions of the main character are very real to the author.

Interestingly, the publisher chose only to edit the novel for spelling, grammar and punctuation. The feeling was that the flow of the book reflected the thought process of someone with the disorder. Although I have not yet read the novel, I believe that it has the potential to be one of the most interesting and honest accounts that exists about having SAD.
