Read in February, 2009

This book was interesting, because I learned from this book that even people who seem like they have it all, sometimes don't want to have it all. There are three main characters in this book; Conner, Vanessa, and Tony. Conner takes pills and its a difficult life for him, parents always wanting him to be best in everything. Vanessa usually cuts her wrists, her mother is loony, says she has a gaurdian angel. Vanessa also has BPD (Bi-Polar Disorder). Tony lost his best friend and foster father, Phillip.

The three kids haven't met until they go to a recorrectional facility, called ASPEN SPRINGS. When they arive at Aspen Springs, they are LEVEL 0. They go up levels if they improve in what they are told to do, like helping out, talking in group, and even being social. During the end some things are tragic, and others spark happiness. I suggest everyone reads this book.

Jolynn BPD stands for borderline personality disorder. Hopkins misused the acronym. You did also. Bipolar has no dash, either. Please get your facts straight.
