Image of item
“The Silent Psychopath” – Why You Should Never Date Someone You Meet in Rehab, is a true story written by Jennylee Rose Bruno which documents her life growing up in a middle-class town in Massachusetts before her comfortable world is turned upside down by a young man with no regard for his life or anyone else’s. Despite being Deaf, Jennylee is sent to regular schools and due to endless bullying, she pretends to overdose and is sent to a psychiatric hospital. It was here that she meets Devin, who takes her on a chaotic terror ride into his dark world of drugs and violence. She experiences several near-death experiences, gets mixed up with the mafia, learns about Devin’s murderous side and is involved in a bizarre encounter with the late John F. Kennedy Jr. During this time, Devin threatens to shoot Jennylee and her family if she attempts to escape. He ultimately holds her hostage for four years, allowing her just fifteen minutes of freedom a day. All of the events that are described in this book actually took place, even though they are quite incredible. The book is an intense yet addictive read as it is so well observed from the eyes of a naïve young woman who makes up for her inability to hear with her acute awareness of visual detail and keen observation of the characters that she encounters along this insane and horrifying journey.
