Twenty or thirty times, I snapped the book shut when a sentence, an image, or a line of dialogue was too beautiful and painful. But I, afraid and curious, would always return to this amazing book. I know, in years to come, I will often return to this book. Sherman Alexie, bestselling author of "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian " Every once in a while you come across a book that you can t get out of your mind, one you have to rush back to if you must put it down for some reason.

Ellen Hopkins, bestselling author of "Tricks," "Identical," "Crank," "Burned," "Impulse," and "Glass " A spectacular first novel.

This was a uniquely told look at teen suicide that doesn't hold back on the dangers of bullying, gossip and rumour. An insightful look into how one seemly small action can have far reaching and devestating consequences. Check out my full review at www.ourbookclub.net.aushow more
