Anyone passing through North Shore, Illinois would think it was the most picture-perfect place ever, with all the lakefront mansions and manicured hedges and iron gates. No one talks about the fact that the brilliant, talented kids in town have a terrible history of throwing themselves in front of commuter trains.
Meet Simone, the bohemian transfer student from London, who is thrust into the strange new reality of an American high school; Mallory, the hypercompetitive queen bee; and Stephen, the first-generation genius who struggles with crippling self-doubt. Each one is shocked when a popular classmate takes his own life...except not too shocked. It's happened before. With so many students facing their own demons, can they find a way to save each other - as well as themselves?

SO worth the credit! This book could save lives!
This book touched on SO many issues that I was amazed at how the author wove it all together! I think this should be required reading in schools, right alongside 13 Reasons Why! And the song mentioned in the book (for which it was likely named I assume) was BEAUTIFUL. I even shared it with a friend battling depressing due to health problems. I've been on both ends of the proverbial "spectrum" where suicide is concerned, so I can relate to a lot of the feelings the characters had. This is the type of book that can really help people and I'm SO glad I stumbled upon it. Ms. Lancaster, thank you for using your talent to really inspire change! I ❤ u!

I love all of the Jen Lancaster books, to include this one, but having two teenagers it’s really apparent that this book is out of touch with teen reality. I really enjoyed the book it’s like teens with technology but talk like 80’s kids. The references are very adult as is the slang and pop culture.
