Hold Still by Nina LaCour was really catchy to read. it immediately grabbed my attention when i saw this book in the library. the plot was mysterious that gets you curious and want to know what happened. this book involves 2 best friends and how their life can be somehow tightly tied together. whiling i was reading this, i could feel Caitlin's grief, but i think she should make better decision and don't be a failure. this story started out at the end of the school year, her best friend Ingrid killed herself. Caitlin is still looking for the answers to why her friends would decide to end her life like this. she also struggle with balancing out her emotions of being the person who had a best friend passed away without knowing why. Caitlin finds Ingrid's journal under her bed and this start the journey when everything turns out bad for Caitlin. the mood for this book is loneliness and pain. can you imagine that the day before you guys were still friends and the very next day, your friend suicide. How would you feel if your Caitlin? The worse part is that you can't do anything to help your friend and all she left behind was the journal with drawings and entries that showed how lonely she was. even though she got many of things to tell Caitlin but she can't say it.
i would recommend this book to people who had one of their friend or someone close to you passed away and you are anticipated to know what happened. to those who want to know how to overcome loneliness or the way it feels to be lonely. in general, this book is very sad and touchy that you should pick up and read so you would understand that sometimes it is too late to regret. Don't make yourself feel guilty if you know that you could have done better than that,it is just showing that you don't care or never bother to notice the problem.
