All In Your Head(?)

In Knocking, Molly begins hearing strange sounds after moving into her new apartment building. Worried, she tries to investigate - but everyone else says they can't hear anything and nobody will believe her.

Not being able to trust your own mind, having doubts cast over what you believe is and isn't happening and not really knowing what is and isn't real unites this collection. Characters are pushed to the edge of their sanity, and sometimes beyond, and dreams, reality, imagination and mental health can combine, distort, become indistinguishable and even break.

When no one believes you and what's happening seems so far-fetched, is this all really happening? Or is it All In Your Head(?).
