What an emotional rollercoaster of a book. I think this should be added to high school reading lists. It gives an insightful look into what can lead a person to suicide and the thought process it takes to get there.
Eh. Felt a little too forced and overdramatic, but that's probably becaue I'm not a teenager myself (thankfully!). I do still think it was interesting and know quite a few kids I would recommend it to.
