Raw and beautiful.

I liked this book; a lot! I feel as if it was extremely relatable. Jeff is a teenager who wakes up in a mental hospital after attempting suicide, and although he's 'locked up' with other 'crazies' he still fails to admit that he may be crazy, for a long time. The story includes tails of his friends and the shocking truth behind Jeff's suicide attempt. Although, the reasoning for his suicide attempt was predictable, other factors of the book kept you guessing right up until the point where he admitted the problem.
I feel like anyone who is growing up in society today would enjoy this book. It outlines the truth about love and life. It has a dark sense of humour that only a few people could laugh along with.
Also, because of my own mental health: I found this book extremely relatable on so many levels as well as compelling. I also found comfort in this book as it highlights that suicide or self harm does not make you crazy.
