Publisher's Summary

In words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend's suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn't die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid's descent into depression becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid - and Caitlin herself.

For Those Who Remain Behind

Any additional comments?

I was concerned about starting this book when I did. A student at the school where I teach chose to take his life and I thought my timing might have too big of an impact. However, I feel like I read an accurate portrayal of all the multiple emotions felt by those left behind and the one who chose to leave. I have several students who knew it was in my queue and are now reading it for themselves. One has suggested that it is helping. I can only hope.

The last chapter is AMAZING

Would you consider the audio edition of Hold Still to be better than the print version?

I have never read the physical - copy. Emma Galvin gives an honest voice to both the living and the dead.

What other book might you compare Hold Still to and why?

Bruiser.

Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin – was your favorite?

Dylan? Maddy?

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book does not shield you with theraputic guidelines.

Any additional comments?

A well - worth listen.
