Teen suicide Not an asy subject to think or talk about This book tells the story of Daelyn She s 15 and determined to die this time Yes you read correctlyshe s tried to kill herself before and failed This time she knows it will work A victim of bullies she can t face life any She thinks Secret Suffragette everyone will be happier without her One day after school she meets Santana and things start to look a little different but is it too lateAs a mother of a child who was bullied and talked about suicide because of it this book was very difficult for me to read It really struck a nerve with me because it is such an accurate account of what really goes on in our kids mind I recommend this book to anyone with a child While I m glad that books like this one are out there toncourage teens to seek help and find reasons to go on rather that committing suicide I m still not a huge fan of suicideself harm stories 7 Secrets of the Goddess especially when they try so hard to be dark that it just comes across as overdramatic I found myself liking Santana as a character much than Daelyn who spends most of her time hanging around on a bizarre pro suicide website why do such thingsxist Why don t the police try to get a handle on them the way they started doing with the pro anorexia websites and instead of coming across as an Indianomix easy character to sympathize with she came across as one of thosemo kids from my old high school who obsessed over all this stuff Make no mistake the subject matter itself is nothing to trivialize Daelyn was bullied for being overweight as a kid and it s something lots of other kids in the real world face My Favorite Earthling (Otherworldly Men, every day I remember when I was inlementary school the two overweight students in my class were routinely taunted with the chanted nicknames fatty fatty boombalatty and oinker and harassed in phys d class Such jokes have never been funny and I m glad this book addresses the harm that bullying can do That said I didn t like the way Daelyn initially treated Santana or her parents and it was difficult to really connect with her as a character simply because she hardly seemed like a real person Instead of showing readers what it s like to be a suicidal teen there s a lot of preachy first person monologues that tell you what Daelyn s life has been like but don t really get you to feel anything for her Much like Thirteen Reasons Why s main character Daelyn is one of those characters who you want to feel sorry for but can t help thinking that they re being a bit selfish I don t mean selfish in that Daelyn should have ndured the bullying or tried harder to be happy but selfish in that she apparently knew all too well what it feels like to be alone and yet still she treats Santana badly whether it be ignoring him outright or wanting him to just go away never Riveted (Iron Seas, even considering the fact that his life has actually been worse than hers and he s only trying to help I think it would have beenasier to relate to her as a character if she wasn t so depressing that she was treating other people rudely What s that saying misery loves company This book was hard but at the same time it was so An Officer and a Spy enthralling Reading so openly about bullying and a parasuicidal kid made my stomach into a knot but I couldn t keep myyes off the book until
I was finished with it It is short but at the was finished with it It is short but at the time it feels
so long Not because it s boring but because the topics it talked about felt so important maybe long Not because it s boring but because the topics it talked about felt so important maybe m not sure what s the right word for BY THE TIME YOU READ THIS I LL BE DEAD tore my insides raw As I read I screamed I cried I threw the book across the room I apologized and cradled it delicately in my hands I also chuckled and fell in love with the characters flawed as they all are Julie Anne Peters is nearly unmatched when it comes to writing about difficult taboo controversial and absolutely necessary subjects and her latest book is a terrifying masterpiece that deserves to find its way into Fates (Fates, everyone s handsDaelyn is not anasily likable protagonist I hope to God that very few of us out there can actually understand where she is coming from a dark and frightening world so terrorized so beaten so loveless that for her suicide is a form of salvation And yet as she slowly reveals to us her bullied past we invariably find ourselves at once within her shocked into silence at what we Recipe for Temptation (Madewood Brothers, experience being her and at her sidemotionally invested in attempting to give her hope It s a powerful duality of readers position that only the most skilled of novelists can achieveAnd indeed Julie Anne Peters incredible writing skills are brilliantly showcased in this book Daelyn s voice is cynical and snarky without being overwhelmingly pity inducing Peters prose is short to the point and lyrically sweet Sometimes succinctness is the greatest form of powerI can t nd this review without pointing out how absolutely lovely Santana is but I ll let you find that out for yourself Needless to say I wish I could place a copy of this book into the hands of veryone between the ages of 12 and 18 Perhaps if OBaby everyone were allowed this candid look into Daelyn s hurt bullying and suicide bullycide would be hopefully less of a terrifyingly real problem This book ticked me off than any I ve read since My Sister s Keeper Just like Picoult s book this novel slapped me in the face at thend and negated whatever positive Nerds experience I might have gained from itBy the Time You Read This could have been a good book It was fast moving and compulsively readable Then I got to thend and literally said out loud What the hell Without giving too much away I ll say this Cliffhangers can be Zack (Areion Fury MC effective literary devices when done well Mentally dropping the reader off the cliff however just frustrates It makes me feel like the author orditor or publisher is just too lazy or too uncommitted to write a resolution Don t get me invested in characters and then not Shadow on the Crown (The Emma of Normandy Trilogy, even tell me what bloody happensIn terms of subject matter it would be virtually impossible not to compare this novel to Jay Asher s 13 Reasons Why Both discuss an important issue in today s youth in a creative way Asher blows Peters out of the park by being much realistic and also giving the reader a satisfying if somewhat sad denouement And while I could relate to Daelyn in some ways than Asher s Heather I felt 13 Reasons Why better demonstrated the complexity ofmotions in a suicidal person Bottom line this book is not worth your time unless you want to throw it across the room when you re done which was unfortun.

Summary By The Time You Read This I'll Be DeadN books and movies which is why i rarely cry at movies i can never get past the idea of them as constructs so if i knew someone this had happened to or if i heard a news story it would be one thing but as far as it happening to a character i can only think of it in terms of ffectiveness to the reader or plausibility i don t lack affect in real life just in books n stuffCaris FYI it would have been relevant to this conversation to mention that your last name was Bateman Oh man your xperience must ve been ven worse than mine With that variety of literature induced sociopathy I would have been completely lost in both books I can say without reservation that if you can t identify with Daelyn then this book sucks ass No wonder you ve Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas exhibited no sympathy whatsoever for these poor deaddying kids That poses a uniue sort of problem though doesn t it I ve found thatvery single one of the books I ve read for class has relied on that The Magic Rolling Pin emotional connection to draw the reader in I ve never tried to distance myself from the story as to do so would make me have to actually pay attention to that drivel When you read then you always reuire a solidffective plot Perhaps it s just because my Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, expectations have gotten so low but I m glad I can stick with themotional manipulation Going back to the uestions I posed to you that you didn t answer they wasn t rhetorical I d like you to answer them Now than Not Without a Fight ever Those uestions which originally were based on the charactersmotional states now are based on plot Did you think at any point that Daelyn was going to kill herself Or that Clay was guilty of anythingkaren sorry sorry fever makes me overlook tiny uestions no i never thought she would actually kill herself Garden Bouquets and Beyond even just reading the copy you know that she will be redeemed through santana and given a reason to blah blah blah that s why there is no reason to read the book just read the flap and you get all you need to know as for clay well i was hoping i was hoping he had done something that was small but led to something big and he wasn tven aware of it something anything no matter how innocently it was done otherwise it is pure cruelty on her part to make him wait for his turn on all the tapes for nothing off to workCaris Seems like fever might be something you should stay home from work for I made a point to not read the flaps I started that at the beginning and didn t want to read any of my assigned books So now I just start reading them without having any idea what they might be about Leviathan and Watersmeet have been genuine surprises That s just bad flap The Unseen Wonder editing in my opinion I didn t thinkven for a second that Clay had done anything wrong He was too nice He got along with his mother and was well liked by classmates On top of that he liked Hannah It was a poor setup for a huge letdown Daelyn though I felt strongly that she would survive had a chance I had 13 Reasons Why in mind and thought to myself that if that moron coul I think that some of the reviews on here are a little biased seeing as some of you reading this book don t understand that type of pain Daelyn was in before she offed herself I read this book a while ago when I was still in high school and it was so beautifully painful for me I was the new girl who underwent bullying along with personal tragedi Daelyn has been demeaned bullied

Ately not an option for me since I read it on my Kindle 25bought at the book fair mibf2015 view spoilerOkay Maybe I am rating this one so low but I guess It just didn t hit me that hardI ve read loads of stuff like this tackling bullying and suicidal tendencies of youngsters and there are a few which really stood out unfortunately this one didn tI just found it cliched for one because the narration of Daelyn s story and Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature experiences sounded as if she s looking at the situation shallowly and as if she isn t problematic at all It wasn t really clarified if she attempted to kill herself because of her past problems or if she has new onesYes she talks about her obesity issues and the tragic fate she had at fat camp But look sheven gets skinny at the Lara and the Gray Mare (Hoofbeats: Lara and the Gray Mare, end to the point that Santana hits on her See The problem of this book is having poor character development and being uite heavy on dialogues Daelyn became a poor character with low selfsteem She seemed weak and dumb Trajan enough to follow tips from the internet on how tond her life I just don t get why people nowadays dwell on popularity and stuff online as if that s gonna last and make you a star what like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian Go ahead and post some nudes I kind of felt bad because it should ve tackled a lot of teenage issues and could ve helped teenagers going through a rough time being teenagersAll this time I felt like I was there listening to how problematic Daelyn s life is in my head and she just can t think of any other ways to relieve herself of her problems aside from Bunnys Book Club Goes to School ending her life Maybe if she tried to look at other aspects of her life she could ve succeeded and got over her issues with herself and her parentsAnd there goes the other problem The character of her parents in this book AAAAAHI CAN GO ON ALL DAY POINTING OUT WHAT LET ME DOWN IN THIS BOOK SRSLY hide spoiler STOPthis is the second part of a conversation about this book i got caris sloppy seconds to read the first part please click hereCaris Maybe it was just your personality Perhaps you re just not the type of dude who gets bullied You know badassery and whatnot I certainly cave on this point The book was unbelievable Both the website and Santana were only there to keep the girl from killing herself Of course all books do this It seems that the bar is just set lower for teen fiction This is one of those cases as are most of the books I ve read recently where the plot of the book insults the intelligence of the reader Teenagers are dumb didn t you hear It s funny and logical that you bring up 13 Reasons Why Over the past few days I ve come to realize that I like this book so much because of how much I hated Asher s book I fucking hated 13 Reasons Why The message killed me Compare for a moment Hannah s complaints and Daelyn s Best ass in school vs assaulted in the bathroom Flirted with her vs made fun of her weight The playing field is not level Hannah killed herself forveryday shit At least Daelyn s shit was painful nough to warrant her choice I didn t like that Asher led the reader to believe that its reasonable to think one could kill oneself for the reasons Hannah did Peters character at least suffered a life that as you say seems unusually harsh In conclusion Jay Asher can suck it But tell me go ahead and try that you didn t love the fact that Daelyn was going to kill
