Publisher's Summary

Three teens who have attempted suicide meet in a psychiatric hospital, battle their demons, and begin to heal. The handsome son of wealthy parents, Connor has everything anyone could want...except his family's love and affection. Jailed for years after killing his mother's child-molesting boyfriend, Tony is confused about his sexuality. Manic-depressive Vanessa cuts herself. All three stories intertwine in a brutally honest story about pain and resilience.

Everything to want in a book❤️

I loved every second of this book. I finished in three days, I couldn't let it go I had to find out what happened in the end. The end was sad, and it made me cry. You'll love this book!

one of my favorites

this book was the first Ellen Hopkins I ever read. and I read it when I was going through a really rough time in my life. after the first chapter by Vanessa I was hooked. I read it faster than any other book, couldn't put it down. now listening to it, its a whole new wave of aw. the characters come to life in this recording. you will feel as the feel. relate it ways you may never share to others. listen to it. you won't be sorry. and if you like this one listen to identical next.
