520    Michael Schofield's daughter January is at the mercy of 
       her imaginary friends, except they aren't the imaginary 
       friends that most young children have; they are 
       hallucinations. And January is caught in the conflict 
       between our world and their world, a place she calls 
       Calalini. Some of these hallucinations, like "24 Hours," 
       are friendly and some, like "400 the Cat" and "Wednesday 
       the Rat," bite and scratch her until she does what they 
       want. They often tell her to scream at strangers, jump out
       of buildings, and attack her baby brother. At six years 
       old, January Schofield, "Janni," to her family, was 
       diagnosed with schizophrenia, one of the worst mental 
       illnesses known to man. What's more, schizophrenia is 20 
       to 30 times more severe in children than in adults and in 
       January's case, doctors say, she is hallucinating 95 
       percent of the time that she is awake. Potent psychiatric 
       drugs that would level most adults barely faze her. A New 
       York Times bestseller, January First captures Michael and 
       his family's remarkable story in a narrative that forges 
       new territory within books about mental illness. In the 
       beginning, readers see Janni's incredible early potential:
       her brilliance, and savant-like ability to learn extremely
       abstract concepts. Next, they witnesses early warning 
       signs that something is not right, Michael's attempts to 
       rationalize what's happening, and his descent alongside 
       his daughter into the abyss of schizophrenia. Their battle
       has included a two-year search for answers, countless 
       medications and hospitalizations, allegations of abuse, 
       despair that almost broke their family apart and, finally,
       victories against the illness and a new faith that they 
       can create a life for Janni filled with moments of 
       happiness. A compelling, unsparing and passionate account,
       January First vividly details Schofield's commitment to 
       bring his daughter back from the edge of insanity. It is a
       father's soul-baring memoir of the daily struggles and 
       challenges he and his wife face as they do everything they
       can to help Janni while trying to keep their family
