Alexis Quinn has always known she was different. Academically and athletically gifted, she soared through her years in educationbut failed to socialise adequately with her peers. Somehow, social norms justpassed her by.

But her difference had always been her strength, until the birthof her child and the death of her brother, Josh; then her difference became herdownfall. Unable to deal with the reality of what happened with Josh,Alexis was detained under the mental health act against her will. She foundherself struggling for years, with diagnosis after diagnosis landing on hershoulders.

Told repeatedly by doctors that she was dangerous, Alexis tried tobecome the person the system wanted her to be: someone normal. But it seemedthat normal was always just out of reach. As time went by, she realised that the care she thought wasgoing to help her might just be the very thing that would destroy her.

Raw and honest, Unbroken tells the story of a strong woman learning how to livebeyond diagnosis. Trigger are proud toannounce Theinspirationalseries partnerto their innovative Pullingthetrigger range. Theinspirationalseries promotes theidea that mental illness should be talked about freely and without fear.
