“Be The News” has received rave five-star reviews from professionals in the medical and media field as well as from the general public.  In the book, author Lori Gertz demonstrates how a media frenzy came of her family going public with their story about not being able to get resources to maintain their mentally ill daughter in their home.
 
In much of the media, Gertz was vilified as a mother who heartlessly sent her 7-year-old adoptive daughter, who struggled with mental illness and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, to be raised by strangers.
