Summary

Ellery wants to die. Nothing is going right. Her younger sister is dead, and her family is in shambles. But on the day that she tries to end it all, even the gun won't work. When she tries to return it, she's intercepted by a security guard who also happens to be a boy in one of her classes, Colter Sawyer. Colter recognizes Ellery's desperation and begins working hard to earn her trust. Why does this cute boy care about my worthless life? Ellery wonders. But as the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Colter has very good reasons for his vigilance - deep personal reasons. And whether Ellery likes it or not, he won't let go.

Just not very good.

Didn’t really enjoy this story at all, I really wanted to but it was TOO melodramatic and a pretty bad reflection of mental health. I know that all experiences are different but this one just didn’t sit well with me at all. Wouldn’t recommend.

Darkly Romantic

Love this book!!!
It's a stark reminder of what it is to be innocent, lost, and naked.

Decent book about suicidal teens

Pretty good book. She thinks its her fault her sister is dead. She's suicidal because of it. I think she went thru the normal grieving process as anyone else, but she wanted to end her life because of it. I was going to say a boy loving her isn't going to fix those feelings but then i realized she wasn't depressed before the death of her sister, it was only out of grief so I guess that's possible, the poor girl just needed some therapy and now she's fine. Good book but def would be a trigger for someone suicidal so if you're depressed don't read this book.
