When I first started reading this book I couldn't put it down. The book
is about Allie and Leah, sisters... but Leah committed suicide. She had a
pact with Allie that if they were ever going to do something like that,
they would go together....but Leah went....alone..
Like I said,
when I first started to read the book I couldn't put it down, but then I
started to get frustrated and irritated at the way Allie was acting.
This is where my own mental and medical issues pushes all of that aside
and I open my mind to what other people would do, how they would act,
how they could get on your nerves. No one acts the same way. People do

Allie is going through so much sadness over her
sister's suicide that she is making decisions that are not good for her.
She has friends, or what she thinks of as friends. There is Max, he's a
big jerk. Emery, who you find out later is a big jerk. It almost seems

she goes back to school. She also finds a good friend in the so called

book, but at the end so many good things just fall into place. I was so
happy for her and I really loved this book. And like I say in books I
read like this, so many things like this happen in the real world. I
wish people would just listen a little more...watch a little more...
care a little more.
