This was an exceptionally well written book by Mary Beth Miller. It was indeed mind-stimulating and I couldn't bring myself to put it down until I read the whole thing. However, I did think it was dangerously realistic. Upon finishing the book, all I could do is think about my best friend that just recently ended her life. Anybody who has ever considered reading killing themself should probably stay away from this book because all I could think about, after reading this book, was how horrible it would be and how I would have probably committed suicide if I had to go through what Zoe and/or Aimee went through. Also, I feel that the book promotes teenage drinking and underage sex by not showing much of the negatives on having sex before marriage and drinking. I also believe the book didn't place sufficient and accurate emphasis on the effects and signs of suicide. I also thought it was cynically cruel to use the name Hope for a person who tried and still wants to commit suicide. Other than my few grievances, I would have to say that this is a very well written book and expect more great things from the author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
