Overview

Pitch Black: Color Me Lost by Melody Carlson

If Morgan thought her life was tough before—what with a drug-addicted, klepto brother and a cradle-robbing mother—it just got worse: Her friend Jason took his own life. Morgan copes—or tries to—by attempting to piece together vague clues that might explain Jason’s suicide. Making matters worse, she can’t help but feel responsible somehow. Sometimes she thinks maybe Jason had the right idea all along. This fourth book in the TrueColors teen fiction series deals with the important topics of grief, suicide, self-worth, identity, and handling tragedy.

"Pitch Black" revolves around Morgan Bergstrom. She is a seventeen year old girl who feels like her life is sorta out of control. Her brother uses drugs, her parents are divorced and since her mom started dating a new guy Morgan feels like her mom really doesn't pay any attention to her anymore. When she learns that her friend Jason Harding committed suicide, she blames herself, but soon starts thinking that maybe Jason had the right idea, and decides to join in a suicide pact with two other students. Do they go thru with it? Read the book and find out! Ms. Carlson tackles the subject of suicide. She tells the story in such a way that you feel like you are actually seeing the story thru the eyes of a teen. While this could have been a depressing story it really wasn't instead it shows us the choices we can make, with an inspirational message woven in. While it is the fourth book in the True Colors series it can easily be read as a stand alone work.This is a good clean read perfect for young adults.

A girl named Morgan has never really had the many friends. Her best friend that she did have was Jason. They did everything together. Then one day she gets really bad news. Her best friend Jason had killed himself. At first Morgan thought that it was a dream or a big joke. But this was no dream and no joke, it was all true. Morgan couldn¿t believe this. She just couldn¿t take the pain of losing her best friend. She couldn¿t go any longer without seeing her best friend. The only solution to Morgan is to just commit suicide herself. But will she? Does she really want to give up her life? Is she strong enough to do it? What I really like about this book was that it started out with a slow pace, but then when Morgan started suggested suicide and then the book really got interesting. The book is part of the Color Me series by Melody Carlson, and it can be read without reading any of the previous books. I would recommend this book mostly to girls because the narrative is a girl, but any boy that wants to read it can.

When I was 15 I was a huge fan of Melody Carlson's Diary of a Teenage Girl series. For some reason these books spoke to an angsty teen girl's troubles, and possibly gave me an unrealistic view of the future. I didn't read too many of her other books outside that series, so I decided to try out a book from her True Color series. Pitch Black follows Morgan, as she deals with suicide of her friend, Jason. Jason's death causes Morgan, and her friends to evaluate their own bleak lives to point where they think suicide might be an option too. Morgan has other people who encourage her to observe where her faith has gone, and how it could be thing that gives her the feel of life again. This book seems to be very relevant by many things we hear happening in the media today. It has the tendency to clean everything up almost too quickly, but there isn't much room in the book to further explore the consequences suicide can leave behind. There is a great discussion guide included, which would probably be very helpful in discussing opinions on suicide with teens. This book should encourage the Christian community to come together more to discuss suicide, and how it is affecting people today. I think this book would be relatable to teens, or people who have experienced something similiar. If you're someone who just needs a little encouragment in your Christian walk, it is inspiring to see how God is conveyed in this book. The book has researched a variety of ways that people at risk for suicide act, and it deals with various grief responses people have. If you weren't aware of these things before it can be insightful. This complimentary copy was provided by NavPress in exchange for a review.

Melody Carlson is a much loved young-adult fiction author and on this evidence, it is easy to see why. Writing a book about teen suicide sounds like a difficult task as the theme can be dark, finding the right words can be challenging and confronting the reality and fallout can seem almost taboo. The central character, Morgan is a quite wonderful and partly vulnerable character whose life is surrounded by equally flawed but very human and recognisable fragile friends and family, including a well portrayed drug addict brother and a 'cradle-robbing mother'. But the book's opening chill comes when her best friend Jason, an intelligent, humorous and perfect youth with everything to live for takes his own life. Like nearly all suicides, it is a shock to his community and the individuals within. What seems a greater shock to our narrator Morgan is that while Jason was a patient listener and insightful sounding board to others, she was not there to listen when he needed her most. The tone of this book is set perfectly between the roller-coaster of denial that this could ever happen to the jolt of acceptance that it has. What is striking perhaps is that the reader almost physically identifies with the characters portrayed - you might find yourself physically reacting at parts of the story as Morgan goes through her cycle of emotions. This is a story told honestly and with hope. It is a convincing narrative with the dialogue, action and references found in teen novels. What marks it as different is a wonderful grasp of what teenagers say and what goes unspoken in informal understandings. For the reader, this novel might seem like a difficult journey but also a real confrontation with the reality of a life beyond this and of the claims of the one Friend that will never leave us or forsake us. Engaging. Outstanding. Exemplary.

Pitch Black, by Melody Carlson, was an amazing book! I was very pleased with the way the author constructed this novel. She starts by introducing the main character, Morgan, who doesn't seem to be having a good day. But then, when it seems as if things couldn't get any worse, she is told the most horrific news! Then, to make things even worse, two of her friends and herself decide to make a suicide pact between themselves! If you enjoy a good, Christian, page-turning novel, Pitch Black is a definite book to read!
