I've enjoyed other books by this author and I mostly read YA so this sounded interesting. But wow, has this author never met a teenager? It was unrealistic and tedious. Most of all it's just so bleak! I realise that self harm and suicide are not exactly laugh a minute subjects, but there's also no need to be so morbid about it. So if you like your books deadly serious, unrealistic and slightly condescending then buy this one and you'll be the only one who isn't disappointed.
