Overview

Vincent has spent his entire life being shuffled from one foster home to the next. His grades suck. Making friends? Out of the question thanks to his nervous breakdowns and unpredictable moods. Still, Vince thought when Maggie Atkins took him in, he might've finally found a place to get his life--and his issues--in order.

When Maggie dies, it all falls apart.

A year ago, Vince watched a girl leap to her death off a bridge. He's starting to think she had the right idea.

Through a pro-suicide forum, Vince meets others with the same debate regarding death: cancer-ridden Casper would rather off herself than slowly waste away, and there's quiet, withdrawn Adam, whose mother wouldn't notice if he fell off the face of the planet.

As they gravitate toward each other, Vince searches for a reason to live while coping without Maggie, coming to terms with Casper's imminent death, and falling in love with a boy who doesn't plan on sticking around.

Meet the Author

Once upon a time, Kelley York was born in central California. And it's there she she still resides with her lovely wife, step-daughter, and an abundance of cats, while fantasizing about moving to England or Ireland. She has a fascination with bells and animals, is a lover of video games, Doctor Who, manga and anime, and likes to pretend she's a decent photographer. Her life goal is to find a real unicorn. Or at least write about them.

Kelley is a sucker for dark fiction. She loves writing twisted characters, tragic happenings, and bittersweet endings that leave you wondering and crying. Character development takes center stage in her books because the bounds of a person's character and the workings of their mind are limitless.

    Wow, what a read.

    Sometimes, we don't think anyone cares. Sometimes we think we could slip away ...

    Sometimes we aren't so dumb to think we are smart and respected. Sometimes we know exactly how weird and stupid and strange we seem to everyone else.

    And each day is hard facing people because of this barrier.

    SUICIDE WATCH is a read that gets inside your head and takes hold of your insecurities. Everyone goes through immense emotional stress and, sometimes, trauma as a teenager. Who are we? Why is it that some people get lumped with bad luck on top of horrible luck or top of terrible luck?

    I adored this read. It really stuck with me. In my head: it's never so bad as to end your own life because things around the corner may be good, and my heart: book hangover.

    It may be bad, but death isn't the answer.

    Huge 5 stars
