I enjoyed reading this book despite the topic. It is well written, well thought out and depicts what people go through pretty accurately. Highly recommend this book.

Absolutley wonderfully book. Everytime I read it it touches me heart. Overall pretty realistic. It captures the reader and leaves them pondering the mystery of the book. Perhaps for mature teens.I read it at 13 but I can see it being too mature for some kids. This is important stuff.

This book is so dark and amazing. It touched my heart and I had tears in my eyes at the end. I recommend it to all !

Really enjoyed all the way through. I thought it was really heartfelt and it touched home for me with having a friend who at one time was very depressed. I love how with the detais you felt what Caitlin did and I was happy for her when she found happiness :)

I just finished this book last night. I loved it!! I didn't want it to end. It's so inspiring.The way Ingrid was feeling and the way she hides it all is amazing. And the part where Caitlian feels alone when she's with Taylor is understandable. I loved this book so much!! <3

This is a very dark and at times difficult book to read because it reads as a true story in its vivid details surrounding suicide and mental illness. It is difficult to get through emotionally and that is a compliment to first time novelist Nina LaCour. Get to the end; it’s a beautifully crafted ending! If you like this book, you might also like these two novels: “Gravity Brings Me Down” by Natale Ghent and “If I Stay” by Gayle Forman.
