Georgie was just a typical teenager when it happened; she was studying hard for a place at her dream university and having fun with her friends on weekends. She always knew what was coming next. She had her entire life planned, until one night and one event turned her whole world upside down. In an instant, everything had changed, and it was never to be the same again.

“Freaks Like Me” is a touching memoir about invisible illness, mental health and the prejudice that sadly comes alongside it. It’s the true story of how one girl and her loved ones finally learnt to accept the hand they had been dealt…

Georgina ‘Georgie’ Peterson was born and raised in Liverpool, U.K. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and also has a strong background in performing arts and working with children, both of which have greatly influenced her life and career. In her late-teens, Georgie was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder, which changed everything. Although she continues to face many obstacles, Georgie considers herself lucky – to be creative, to be alive and to be surrounded by such great people.

She is currently penning another book, which she hopes will become her debut novel, and continues to work on raising awareness of illness and disability, mental health, bullying and so on.

    Wow, what can I say! Best read in a long time. An amazing book from an inspirational girl. I was hooked just from seeing the cover and couldn’t wait for my copy to arrive. I was moved to tears from start to finish. Such a brave young lady for sharing her story with the world. It certainly gave me a new perspective on life and I know it will definitely help so many people in the world suffering from any form of the medical condition and it will give anyone who doesn’t suffer on a daily basis a reality check. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. I hope she continues to write more books, I’m a huge fan now.
