Dont it will all end up fine if you just pray to God and give it to Him. Now i know what you are thinking " Yeah another person telling me it will be ok and they dont even know what it is like" but i do know what it is like to want to give on life but if you think about it if you die it may end all chances of life getting worse but i also ends all chances of life getting better. I am praying for u. Christian Girl

I was suffering with depression, today still am a little bit. But I went to the schools library to find a book about depression and stuff, so I came across Almost Lost and checked it out. At first did not wanted to. But did anyways and through the months of reading this book I felt more connected with Sammy, I love this book and every page I turned to related to me...Now, today I thank God for making me checked this book out. It was time to turn it in. So I did but next year I checked it out and now I never turned it back in because I love it so much I actually cried because I did not want to turn it in. It was hard this book is my life...giving it to someone would be like giving my life away. There are so many people who think this book sucks but thats because THEY suck...This is a Golden prize for me. Now I have the book in my backpack never take it off from there. Oh and this is my 3rd time going through it. =D

This book was really good. I can relate to 'Sammy' a lot because I went though the same thing that he did. After reading it, I didn't feel so lonely or depressed. It made me feel that I wasn't the only one going through this and other people feel the exact same way.

This book is about a fifteen year boy named sam. He is going through the depression and violence. He is in a gang and trouble a lot. He went and see the help. He is not doing so good. Read this book if you're in a gang. This will help you make the right decesion. So red and enjoy it.

I think this book would have been SOOO much more interesting if they had put it in Sammy's point of veiw, instead of his phsyciatrist tapes. Because then it feel like your getting a lecture instead of a story. The only realy good part of this book is when he explains the stuff about running away. And who in their right mind would high-five a shrink?

When I first got this book, I thought it was going to be really good. Yeah, right. I read about 40 or so pages but was SO INCREDIBLY BORED, I had to put it down. I have depression too, but this book was such a bore. Maybe it would have been more interesting if the book was written through Sammy's point of view rather than his trips to the Pyschiatrists office, God knows I've sat through enough of my own.

WOW i really loved this boook. At first i didnt because first they talk about how he came and how his mother was talkin to the psychiatrist, but then i really got into the book when sammmy was tellin what happened to him. I think that many people should really read this boook. Because theres a lot of people who talk like say things like they are 'gangsta' and all that but they are really not, they really don;t know what happenes when you get shot, how you feeel, and when you think that noone cares bout you and you feel lonely, many people don;t know those basic thingz. I really love books by beatrice sparks, they are really interesting, and i have almost all of them at home. So people buy her books and read them.

I just finished this book and I loved it! I think it would really help any teen with a similar situation.

This book is a true to life type of story. I was intrigued by the types of things Sammy went through, and i believe many young kids and teenagers could relate. This book could be motivating to any kid who feels he or she is on the edge.

I liked it. But I didn't find it that helpful! It's weird though...why would you go to a shrink after you came home from running away before you went to a friends house or your own house?

This book brought tears to my eyes. It takes you through Sammy's life, from the lies and deceit, to the truthfulness and behavioral problems that will make you want to work with behavioral psychology forever. I would recomend this book to anyone.
