Bio/Memoir - Women's Studies
Date Published: 4/17/2011

Anya Michaels is having the time of her life. She has the man of her dreams by her

side. She has graduated at the top of her class. She has the job others were lining up for. Between

late night drinks at her favourite bar and fancy dinners at the most expensive restaurants, she

has a string of adoring friends. Everything changes when she hears the dreaded words, "You are


Being diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder, her world starts to fall apart, one piece at

a time. Now dumped, her four year relationship is nothing but a memory filled with pictures,

thoughts and a very broken heart. Her job becomes an even further challenge as she tries to hide

party girl? Perfect could not crumble any faster.

Soon, caught between situations, people and pieces of life that she never dreamed of planning for

herself, Anya begins to wonder if her brain condition is all that bad. As she absorbs the changes

in her life and realization sets in, she begins to wonder if she is the only one saying: Excuse Me,

My Brains Have Stepped Out.

  1. I have to say that the title really got my attention. The plot sounds different and I haven't read anything like it before. I also like the fact that buying the book is like donating to charity.
