Sounds Like Crazy by Shana Mahaffey

Holly Miller, the main character of Shana’s novel, has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Her personality has five different identities, together known as “The Committee”. And as much as they make Holly’s life miserable, Holly thinks she can’t live without them. Then one of those identities, southern bell, Betty Jane, lands Holly a cartoon voiceover position. Betty Jane wants nothing more than to be the center of attention though the rest of The Committee wants Betty Jane to shut up. Holly’s therapist, Milton, wants to get to the bottom of her wrecked psyche. And Holly? She’s just along for the ride.

During the trip down life’s glorious highway we discover a that Holly’s father is an abuser, her mother is a control freak, and her sister plays her due to a guilty conscience but most of all we find out the original trauma that caused Holly’s first or should I say second identity to show up. This book will both touch your heart and have you laughing out loud.
