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.

However, Brittney does an excellent job at talking her reader through Gigi’s journey; putting you right there in the same room as them.
