This is the diary of an adolescent girl diagnosed with mental illness. She seems obsessed with celebrities such as Melissa Manchester, Styx, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, and affected by the book Carrie White by Stephen King. Her writing is based on sound associations, leading to rhymes, but sometimes incongruous, and in line with a perceptual disorder. So that a statement at the beginning of a sentence may be totally contradicted by its end. Her thoughtprocessing at times is like a train that switches tracks in the midst of a trajectory. Many times however it does make sense. It is hoped that this book may forge the way to innovative approaches to the treatment of thought disorders, which is a the basis of paranoid disorders, enlisting the strength of the affected individuall to "put the train back on the correct track", and use more education and less drugs. Yael describes herself as a flying swan, therefore the cover.
