I get it now. It’s hard to let someone find you in all the dark and twisty places inside, but eventually, you have to hope that they do, because that’s the beginning of everything.

Words On Bathroom Walls (2020 - Review
CW/Note: This movie deals with schizophrenia and because I’m not super knowledgeable on that particular mental illness, I cannot tell you whether it was a decent depiction of someone living with that illness or not.
Once again we have Charlie Plummer gracing our screens with his Chad Micheal Murray haircut from 2003, to play the main character in movie based off of a YA novel. (Not a diss, just facts.) Plummer plays a high school senior named Adam who has dreams of becoming a chef, but also schizophrenia and so far the medication isn’t helping. The voices in his head keep getting louder and his last hope is a new drug trial and a Catholic school where if he succeeds, he’ll be able to one day go on to cooking school and live the life that he’s always wanted. To aid in all of that actually happening, Adam hires Maya to tutor him in math, but just like all YA novels, you know where that leads him.
Not gonna lie many parts of this story did feel very predictable and in the vein of the many mental health or physical illness mixed with romance YA stories, that have preceded it. I wouldn’t call that “trope” its downfall though. However we feel about things being played out, the formula still works and we’re still drawn back to it every time. I know it has to be somewhat optimistic, but for me it’s true downfall was that it felt too optimistic. Even through all the cursing and the black smoke that plagued Adam’s senses, everything still felt way more hopeful at many of the turns than I would have liked. Not that I wanted anything bad to happen, there just wasn’t enough swimming in the deep end for me. It also feels like if he just gets this one thing, then he’ll be okay, not cured but stable, which I assume isn’t the best way to think in this case. I’m skeptical to pick up the book because of the intense nature of the story in an of itself, and how sometimes Young Adult novels don’t go as hard as I’d personally like them to, especially when dealing with mental illness. Or, maybe it’s the other way around and this movie just didn’t go as hard as I wanted it to, like most YA book to movie adaptations and because of that I’m judging a book by its movie.
Either way it was a decent young adult movie, with a decent soundtrack thanks to the Chainsmokers, that will live in the middle-space of the coming-of-age/young adult book to movie, genre rank somewhere.
.
.
Side Notes/Questions:
I didn’t trust Paul (Walton Goggins) for most of the movie either.
Were we supposed to pity Maya? I feel like she wouldn’t have wanted us to, but the way her story was angled made me feel like we were pushed to do just that.
Shout out to Beth Grant for gracing my screen once again.

📽 Words on Bathroom Walls (2020)
This is a sweet story of a boy who is trying to overcome his mental illness. I don’t have schizophrenia and I don’t know anyone who does, but from what I’ve read, this movie does a pretty good job of portraying what it’s like. I can’t even imagine not being able to trust what I hear and see. It’s sweet in the way that he builds on his relationships throughout the movie. Obviously, his struggles during the course of the film are not sweet. I believe this movie shows the importance of a support system for those with mental illnesses. It’s hard to watch and it’s deeply moving.
Sex/nudity: 2/10 (kissing, flirting, innuendoes, shirtless boy)
Language: 5/10 (one f-word, quite a few s-words)
Violence: 4/10 (mental breakdowns including violence)
Overall rating: 8/10

Chapter 3
Adam’s first day in the new school and the first thing he did was meet jerkface Ian. I despise people who just put their chewed up gum everywhere. It’s disgusting.
On a more positive note he also met Maya briefly and seems to already be developing his crush. I don’t know anything about her yet except that she seems nice.
It’s also nice to see that the medicine seems to be working. However due to this being a book I suspect that he’ll get some less than pleasant side effects before the stories over. You know, to rise the tension.

Book Review: Words on Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton (spoiler-free)
Words on Bathroom Walls is a book was made into a movie and released this year. I’ll be completely honest and say that I only found this book because I say saw the trailer while falling down a YouTube rabbit hole (side note -- I feel like searching on YouTube and getting sucked into watching many videos of randomness is vaguely Alice in Wonderland reminiscent, so the term “rabbit hole” to describe it is very appropriate). Anyways, I found the trailer, and said, “That looks interesting! I should go watch it!” (I did the same thing with approximately eleven other movies or shows, just FYI). However, when looking to find where you can watch the movie, I realized that it was based upon a book. And, as any proper bookworm knows, watching the movie before reading the book is just scandalous! And preposterous! (Okay, to be fair, I have watched movies before reading the books before, but I try to avoid it when possible, you know, out of principle). So, I read the book. This background is getting way to long, so TL;DR: I found the movie trailer, it looked interesting, realized it was based upon a book, and then read the book.
Words on Bathroom Walls (both the book and movie) is about a teenager named Adam who is diagnosed with schizophrenia. It’s written in sort-of diary form, as the book is his usually weekly letters that he writes to his therapist. He is receiving an experimental drug for treatment, while navigating everyday teenage issues, like school, and dances, and friends, and falling in love. 
I really enjoyed this book. The format especially made it interesting, as it gave a very clear glimpse into Adam’s head, with his rather frank and blunt letters to his therapist. The one downfall to this format was there wasn’t any real-time interactions between characters, but Adam did directly transcribe some conversations and experiences, which while it isn’t the same, is quite close.
One thing that I loved about this book is the fact that it is about mental illnesses and mental health, especially a mental illness that is considered very taboo. I am slowly starting to see an increasing number of books, movies, and TV shows featuring positive representation of various mental illnesses, so I am very glad that this book (and movie) add to this number. I am a firm believer that while reading about characters similar to you is important, characters different than you are equally important. This book allowed me to learn more about schizophrenia, and hopefully allows for others to do the same. In addition to causing others to learn about and talk about mental illnesses, books like this are also so vital in allowing people to see themselves in the character, people who in this case have schizophrenia, feel less alone.
Overall, this was a enjoyable book that is hopefully both educating people and making others feel less alone. I can’t wait to watch the movie! If Words on Bathrooms Walls by Julia Walton (or the movie by the same name) sounds interesting, please check it out!
