It tells the world that you are weak. It tells the world your family and friends have failed. It leaves them with guilt that they could have done more but didn't. It tells them they are clueless and helpless.
I am weak, but I am not selfish.
My suicide will not leave my family and friends with guilt and shame; it will leave them thankful that they knew me for the short time I was here.” – Cosette Hugo
Her brother died. Her parents divorced. Her high school bully is relentless. Cosette doesn't have a lot to live for, but it isn't until she accidentally kills someone that Cosette makes the decision to take her own life. Unwilling to bring shame to her mom, best friend Mattie, or her boyfriend Chris, Cosette decides the best method of suicide is to become a victim of the local serial killer, The Poser. But every time she goes out to find him she gets attacked; her instincts take over, and she ends up killing her attackers. This quickly leads to unbearable guilt. Desperate to finish this before she gets caught or racks up more victims, Cosette does the unthinkable.
“And when I reach my final goal, to meet my brother in heaven, and we're looking down at my victim in Hell, he will say to me ‘Well done, Cosette. What a Beautiful Suicide.”

This book was recommended to me by a friend who knows my taste and I started it immediately when she described it as Cruel Intentions meets Pretty Little Liars meets Heathers... that alone had me completely intrigued. And man she was completely right, I think it was mostly like Heathers which I loved.
I hesitate to say this is YA because it's not, it just has teenage characters not teenage situations. This book was dark and twisty and I listened until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer! It would have been one I finished in 1 day if I had started it earlier. I love when a book pulls me in and it's like an accident you can't look away from, you know the kind, the book you know your not supposed to like cause it's dark and a whole lot of messed up but you love it and want to tell the world about how good it is! I don't want to tell anything about the story in my review because these are the type of stories I think are best enjoyed when you go in blind. It ended in a cliffhanger but not one that had me screaming at the author and it probably helps that I know book 2 will be out on audio very soon! This author just moved herself onto my auto buy list with just 1 book!
The narration was perfect! Michelle Sparks really did an awesome job as Cozy & as Chris. She is the type of narrator that makes you forget your listening to someone read you a story and makes you feel like your there while it's happening.

Well worth the listen
I really enjoyed the story and the narrator was great. The characters were very likable and it kept you wanting to know what was going to happen. A different take on her view of how she wanted to leave this world. Cliffhanger makes you want to know what is next. Recommend this book.
