I read this book based on the first couple of pages after I picked it up on sale at the local bookstore. I was sucked in because the author said she wanted to understand her sister's suicide so she could watch for the same signs in her teenage son. The prospect of losing my daughter to suicide terrifies me. The book was interesting, not very scientific (which I appreciated) and mostly gave me some comfort that I could read about it but not be overwhelmed by the subject matter. I mostly deal with suicides through work, so reading such a personal account of it was eye-opening. It was definitely worth my time.
