Meg was fifteen years old when she wound up in Gunya, the infamous psychiatric institution for the rich and famous. Quite an achievement, especially for one who's convinced she's only half nutty. It was never Meg's idea of 'fun' to share her life with an underage pornstar, a prodigal junior-Olympian or a drug-addicted criminal; but when you're electively mute and can't remember why, you're not given many choices. The disappearance of a local girl Meg's age brings the quirky group together in a race against time to solve the crime before the authorities. Suddenly, the torture of being committed against their will is shadowed by the nightmare that reveals itself each day in the crime section of The Daily Telegraph. Most amazingly, the foursome form a friendship, stronger than the walls that encage them in their crazy world. And somehow this becomes the key Meg needs to find herself, and solve the mystery of her own incarceration.

"Just Meg" is powerful story of the evil which "man" is capable of, the lengths to which some go to disguise it, and the glimmer of hope that lies in us all.  It's cast of characters include both the meek and outgoing...and then there is Meg, our silent narrator.  Together the girls work to discover just why each has landed in Gunya, the "premiere" psychiatric facility for the hidden away rich and famous; the truths of their stories will shock and awe as each is revealed. 

"Just Meg"....the title is stated so simply, as if a bashful soul is counting itself among the living, yet the message at its heart screams forth a declaration of "I AM HERE". There is no "just" about Kate Russell's story....it truly reaches out to the reader, taking you into the darkest corners of mankind and shining the light of truth. All of the characters are welcoming, interesting, and memorable, but Meg stands out as a voice to be counted, to be remembered. I would highly recommend this book to young and old alike.
