DescriptionHenry and Winston are twins. They develop a secret language between themselves which leads to them being misdiagnosed as having learning difficulties. They soon discover that this diagnosis helps them get away with more than their long suffering brother and sister. However as they get older they start to realise that acting daft is not as brilliant as they first thought. Is it too late to come out of the closet so to speak? About the Author Amanda has suffered from schizophrenia as long as she can remember. However she remained undiagnosed for years and got through school and nurse training to become a learning disabilities nurse as it is now called. When she was twenty six someone spiked her drink in a pub which led to her capture by the psychiatric dept. Now thanks to their treatment she is on long term sick leave and probably will stay there for the rest of her life. Having experienced both sides of the psychiatric fence most of her fictional writing is concerned with some type of mental health problem.
