Read in June, 2012

I had randomly spotted this on Amazon, downloaded it to my Kindle and read it in one afternoon. I’m drawn to stories about suicide, I’m interested to know the reasons behind the action. The reason behind Lilly’s decision isn’t immediately obvious and in fact I hadn’t guessed the reason until it was revealed.

The story is told mostly from Lilly’s point of view but there are a couple of chapters told from the point of view of her best friend (and possible romantic interest?), Buddy. I liked the varying viewpoints because suicide affects the family and friends of the victims as well.

I really liked this book and might even read it again some time in the future. I recommend it if you like books such as Thirteen Reasons Why or If I Stay (not suicide but death is a main theme)
