Book Review: “You’re Going to be Fine” by Brittney D. Herz

Book Review: “You’re Going to be Fine” by Britteny D. Herz

You’re Going to be Fine, by author Brittney D. Herz, is a captivating and heart-wrenching true story about juvenile mental health and the impact it can have on the child as well as their parents and loved ones. While the author, Brittney D. Herz, writes the story she constantly reminds us that this is truly her daughter, Gigi’s, story. This book makes your heart ache for this little girl who just wonders why she isn’t like all the other children. Unless you have ever struggled with mental illness yourself or have a loved one who has gone through it, you may not fully understand the agony that this family has gone through. However, Brittney does an excellent job at talking her reader through Gigi’s journey; putting you right there in the same room as them.

You’re Going to be Fine is very informative and is riddled with juvenile mental health facts. Brittney walks you through the good days as well as the bad, and she doesn’t hold back. This book goes to prove that mental illness does not discriminate by age, gender, or race. Sadly, it shows us that it can happen to anyone, at any time.

This book is a testament to Brittney’s strength and the love that she has for her daughter. While some people may assume that Gigi’s behavior is nothing more than a disciplinary problem, they would be wrong. Mental illness may not something that you can physically see, but that does not mean that it is not there.

I sincerely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about juvenile mental health. Brittney does a wonderful job at showing other parents who may be going through something similar that they are not alone.

  1. I agree with this review, it was a wonderful story that gave an insightful view about one family’s struggles. Adding in facts and resources for family struggling with mental health issues in young children. But the real draw to this book was the way the book allowed you to try and connect with what a young child is thinking and feeling. This kind of insight could only be given by a loving mother, looking past behaviors that others would only want to punish or control and trying to get to the root of why her child is suffering.

    I can’t express how honored I was to read this review. My Bipolar Mind has been a great resource for me and I appreciate the time Samantha put into reading my book and expressing her opinion on it. It’s still somewhat surreal to read messages from people reaching out to me, or reviews like this, and knowing that our story is resonating with so many people.
    You’re Going to be Fine is still available on

    • Thank you so much, Brittney. It has been so wonderful to work with you. I was so honored to be able to read your book, and I am thrilled that you liked my review of it. It is very well written and insighful. You made it so that your readers are right there with you going through it. I also completely understand what you mean about it feeling surreal to read messages or reviews from people who have read your book. You explained it perfectly!
