Jodie | 14 comments I'm looking for something similar to Rae Earl's diaries. A book where the main character is in recovery from mental health.

Alternatively I'm looking for books about baby loss(miscarriage/termination) preferably where the main character is a teenager - 30.

Or a book where a young person feels as if they've missed out on a portion of their life and therefore decides to live life to its fullest.

Thank you.

The Bell Jar is about a young woman with depression and mental health issues; electroshock therapy is involved, psychiatrists, clinics.

Jodie, I edited your header to provide more information. Many times people only read the header and if you have put additional types of books you want in the first post, they won't see that.

Peter Meilinger | 475 comments Deadline by Chris Crutcher is about a high school senior who finds out he has less than a year to live and forgoes treatment that's unlikely to help in favor of enjoying what time he has left. Somehow it's less depressing than several Crutcher books where no one dies.
