I guess with me wanting to be a psychologist I find the troubled teen depressing books. Just in case if any of you notice a pattern of my books and start to worry. I want to help teens like these someday and I think the best way is to try to understand them, it’s easy to tell someone they are wrong in doing what they are doing. It’s another to try to explain why they are wrong.
3 troubled teens, 3 suicide attempts, 3 different lifestyles, they find themselves in a psychiatric hospital and build a friendship. As they begin to trust each other they look for ways on how to trust themselves and learn to love. The ending could lead to a squeal but I’m not sure if there will be one.
That was my sister looking down on me after I read this book.
It’s funny how you truly get captivated in books and truly fall in love with the characters and when one dies it’s like loosing a part of your soul.
Reading this book was an eye opener of how lucky I really am. The girl they renamed as “Lucy” was very similar to how I use to be. I fin myself lucky because my clean friends knew something was wrong in my life and I tried to push them away they wouldn’t leave. I still regret pushing away my closest and dearest friend. I thank God everyday that I didn’t become like Lucy and have a brighter side in my life so I don’t “need” to smoke or snort. I don’t “need” to escape this place just to “feel normal.” When I finished reading I truly mourned for Lucy. I knew the end but I begged and wished it wasn’t true until I read the last page. If you know someone that is doing drugs I’d try to let them read this book or read it yourself. It touched my heart in so many ways I can’t even begin to express myself about this book.
Even tho I never had an anorexic problem I’ve seen the damage of it. I have a family member (I won’t say who) that has had it for years. I’ve tried talking to them but never fully understood. After reading this, it may not be how or why they do it, but I found an insight of why someone would do it. I call it a “good read” but yet it is a sad ending. If you want to get into a teenage girls head that has an anorexic problem you found the book. But if your looking for a book that has a happy ending with her recovering, I’m sorry but this ain’t it. I really hope that with her problem and her story being told it helps someone else to not end up as she did.
Christmas has came and gone, for the just I think I did awesome. It always amazes me how my family (mother and father side) have never been rich. Tho we were never homeless and they always found a way to give us presents. This year I got 5 books, 3 from Ellen Hopkins my all time favourite Author!!!! Also I am now down to 288.3 so that puts me around 58 pounds smaller since June. And I’m loving that my hard work is finally paying off somewhere. Thanks for all the support. I hope y’all had a merry Christmas. 💙
