Overview

The Gatekeepers by Jen Lancaster

“How could we know that forever could end at seventeen?”

Anyone passing through North Shore, Illinois, would think it was the most picture-perfect place ever, with all the lakefront mansions and manicured hedges and iron gates. No one talks about the fact that the brilliant, talented kids in town have a terrible history of throwing themselves in front of commuter trains.

Meet Simone, the bohemian transfer student from London, who is thrust into the strange new reality of an American high school; Mallory, the hypercompetitive queen bee; and Stephen, the first-generation genius who struggles with crippling self-doubt. Each one is shocked when a popular classmate takes his own life…except not too shocked. It’s happened before. With so many students facing their own demons, can they find a way to save each other—as well as themselves?

"Hope is being able to see there is light despite the darkness." -Desmond Tutu As I was reading this novel this quote really stuck out to me, and stuck with me throughout the rest of the book. I won this novel after signing up for a giveaway given by Harlequin. I had completely forgotten about signing up so when I received an email stating I had won a signed copy I was so happy. Never had I won anything before, other than on Goodreads of course. I had already wanted to read this novel, it was even saved on my "To-Read" on Goodreads, so winning it made it so much better. It's hard to put into words how powerful this book is. It sends such a strong message to the readers. This novel is good for all ages, well maybe not all ages but definitely pre-teen and up. It sends a message that everyone goes through things, may it be with family or friends or even school or work. But know that you are never alone, even if you feel that you are, there is always someone you can talk to. A significant other, a parent or other family member, a friend, counselor or even a school teacher. Whomever you feel most comfortable with, they are the most likely person that will help you through anything. Don't lock it up deep inside and just hope that this feeling goes away. It's always better to work through how your feeling than holding it in. This novel also helps you try to figure out the signs of someone who may be down or depressed, or someone who might be going through something. It's sometimes hard to see the signs, especially when someone won't let you in. But if you notice something might be off about someone it's good to pay attention. See if you notice anything different and then talk to them, let them know you're there for them. Desmond Tutu's quote stuck with me because it tells you that even though you may be going through something, even though you may feel like you are in darkness there is always light somewhere. That light might just be someone close to you, to help you find your path out of the darkness and into the light. Someone to help shine the light on your darkness and help you find the path to happiness. Someone to help you keep moving forward.
