From the Publisher
Annotation Written in fast-paced free verse, this young adult novel is about depression, self-hate, and learning to live. Vanessa, Tony, and Conner are all at Aspen Springs because each tried to commit suicide, and through their various, tortured backgrounds, the trio finds commonality. As they go through the program, the horrors of their pasts are explained, and they become closer, discovering that life might actually be worth living.
Editors Note After attempting to commit suicide for varying reasons, three teens find themselves at Aspen Springs where they will receive the treatment they need and find the friendships they crave in order to get through the personal challenges they must face in the tumultuous period ahead.
