Loved it! I hoped that the book would end in a different way. I hoped Daelyn would go with Santana. But I think it was a good idea that she still did suicide ( I mean not good in like why she did) but it shows us how many people who are intent in giving their lives will do it and nothing can stop them. Santana had tried to cheer Daelyn up, but she still was going to do suicide. The book gave us an excellent view of what people think and do when they have been and are being bullied constantly.

This was an interesting read. I am now 22, and this definitely reminded me of how I felt when I was 15. That being said, the ending was left open, and i do not appreciate that. I also wish the book had gone more into detail of her mental health issues; however it is a good start to the topic of teen suicide.
