A sensitve, original treatment of teenage suicide
This book deals with the uncomfortable subject of teen suicide and does so with great sensitivity and at times heartbreaking wit. It is also a highly original take on the subject. The book is written from the perspective of a teenage boy, who on returning home finds a box of tapes recorded by a girl who had recently killed herself. Each tape refers to one of thirteen people who contributed to her death and each person on that list recieves the tapes. What follows is an exploration of how our actions, however small ,effect those around us and start a chain reaction that can lead to catastrophe. I would reccoment this book to anyone, especially those in thier teen years. It is a totally gripping read.
