    1. 2nd win from good-reads. Wow, I don't even know what to write, an amazing read for everyone! Very great hard to put down book!!

    2. This is such a topical and important subject. Too often we are hearing about adolescent kids taking their own life.Some of these suicides are the result of non stop bullying both offline and online.Others are the result of depression, often unbeknownst to even thier closet friends and family due to the stigma that mental illness still carries,unfortunately.Dr. Brian G Snow,the author, has first hand experience in dealing with young people who are often unfairly marginalized by society.

    3. I was delighted to receive this book from Giveaways!This book was extremely informative and took the reader to places and experiences that are not normally encountered. The author Dr. Brian Snow, reveals a complete underbelly of society that most people are not aware or their casualties. This book was extremely moving and makes you want to do something about making changes in these childrens lives.I would totally recommend this book to anyone who is going into education, social work or voluntee [...]

    4. I won a copy of this through the good reads firstreads program. It was informative and emotional. I had trouble getting past the writing, there were typos and extra/missing words and paragraphs that almost repeated, as if the author was trying to decide which one to use and left them both. I just read another review which mentioned editing, so maybe my copy was before that. I just found it distracting and lacking a good flow for much of it, but I appreciate the story and the opportunity to read [...]

    5. I got this for free through a first reads giveaway. I really liked it! I was sooo shocked at the end and was soo sad. :( This book gets better and better as you read. I think it was well written and that you could feel what the characters were feeling. This is so raw and honest about the lives of people we dont really think about. The only thing i dont like is how in the begining it was a little overly detailed. Other than that awesome book.

    6. Wow this book was so moving. I am so happy I read it. I hate what happened to those girls and I was so sad that Lupe took her life. I am glad that everything worked out for Brian and Maria. Its a beautiful tragic story.

    7. This book does make an effort, but fails to make an impact. It was difficult to follow at some parts and sort of lost sight of its own plot line.
