just started this book and i was already pulled in. i had to drag my eyes away from this book just to comment. It is so sad but so deep and beautiful. You hear about these kids all the time but you never actually get to hear their story. I was hestitant at first, but now im so happy i gave it a chance. This is such an amazing but and the writing is so beautiful. Basically, give it a chance like i did, im sure you'll love it like i do.

Great book...intense story...dark histories always get me thinking about the parts of our lives that we keep hidden from our friends.

I'm not a very big reader but I must say that this book was simply amazing. Despite all the depressing parts, the ending is definatly worth it. I was eager to read more the whole time I was reading the book and would definatly recommend it. To anyone that gave up on the book half way, continue reading, you will not be disappointed.

Gosh could you get any more depressing?! Seriously though. Any more meloncholiness and it would have been boring, but it had just enough. It was ok. It actually had a pretty emotional plot and all.

This book looked ok so I tried it. But Bryan was really depressing and just when I thought it would get a little happier, he ruined it. Like he would do something that made his mother upset and then walk away, thinking how she was having a hangover or something. I didn't end up finishing it since it was too sad. Apparently, the ending is happy so I think I'll skip to there the next time I see this book.

After the death of his tough, guitar-playing, much-loved sister, Michelle, Brian finds it increasingly difficult to care about anything. He doesn't care about his parents. He doesn't care about his friends. He doesn't care about school. He just doesn't care anymore. The only time Brian comes alive is in the few seconds it takes for the razor to slice through his skin. But he never cuts deep enough to cause any real damage. At least, not yet...
