Jenny Elizabeth Whitfield, 16 years old, Newcastle.
I'm an aspiring writer who loves reading and talking about politics. I live with anxiety, panic disorder and emetophobia, and as well as working with mental health charities and doing voluntary work, my favourite thing to do is share my experiences with mental health problems online via my twitter and my blog.
The way that many artists have worked together to show their own interpretation on the poems and the protagonist's feelings have worked very well to create such a moving and inspiring graphic novel, which many people from all backgrounds and situations will be able to appreciate. Rob's poetry, which fits so well into the novel alongside the artwork, is used in such a way to make it a very personal account, and this will hopefully remind readers that real people are in similar situations. Each section is individually crafted, and it is both the beautiful artwork and amazing poetry that compliment each other so well which leaves an impression on the reader, and it is this which is most important of all, as this touching novel will hopefully help many people begin to understand the severity of mental health problems, and make many realise that they are not alone.
