A friend of mine had mailed me a few of the recent books she had finished (yay for sweet friends and cheap Media Mail postage). Apparently this book has been turned into a Netflix series (although I'm not sure that I'll watch it), so I was excited to give this a read. The hubby asked what it was about when I was a couple chapters in and I gave him a quick synopsis. He chuckled and said that it sounded like Pretty Little Liars (okay, sure, I may not be a teen any longer, but I have a few guilty pleasures ;)). I actually really enjoyed this book (seeing as I had a hard time putting it down and sped through it in less than a day). It definitely touches on some very serious subjects (suicide being one of them), but I appreciate that it is giving people a dialog to discuss some of these things. It really reminds you that all actions have consequences, whether you see them or not.

The best book I've ever read honestly. I base all my book recommendations on this one.

The first time I read this I hated it. But, I read it very quickly. The second time I read it I understood how the main character felt, and I absolutely loved it. Pick it up and read it, it will amaze you.
