The book i read was The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon. The Burn Journals is a Memoir. Its about a kid named Brent and he is in 8th grade and talk's about killing himself a lot. Him and his friends like to mess around in school and one day he set a t-shirt on fire in the locker room and put it in a locker. If the school found out it was him he was going to get expelled. He thought that if he got expelled his parents would hate him. So one da when he got home he went to the shed and got the gasoline and matches, then he went up stairs and got his bathrobe and soaked it in gasoline. Then he laid down in the bathtub and lit a match. It caught by his wrist and he shot up in fire. Once he was on fire he found out that he didn't really want to die and that it was horrible. His brother came in and saw him and called 911. Then he had to be in rehab for the next year.
I recommend this book for everyone. It is a good book that keeps you interested. It keeps you focus and you dont want to put the book down.
