From the author of the acclaimed "Crank" comes a gut-wrenching story of teens in crisis. Three lives, three different paths to the same destination: Aspen Springs, a psychiatric hospital for those who have attempted the ultimate act of desperation--suicide.
From the Publisher:
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.
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.

Praise

"Each character is full-bodied and distinct...[R]eaders will find themselves invested in the characters by the time the three head to their outdoor challenge-the final piece of their program-and can finally divulge their darkest secrets to one another...This is a thick book, but the free verse makes for a fast read." 1/22/2007
