Sometimes you don't wake up. But if you happen to, you know things will never be the same. Three lives, three different paths to the same destination: Aspen Springs, a psychiatric hospital for those who have attempted the ultimate act -- suicide. Vanessa is beautiful and smart, but her secrets keep her answering the call of the blade. Tony, after suffering a painful childhood, can only find peace through pills. And Conner, outwardly, has the perfect life. But dig a little deeper and find a boy who is in constant battle with his parents, his life, himself. In one instant each of these young people decided enough was enough. They grabbed the blade, the bottle, the gun -- and tried to end it all. Now they have a second chance, and just maybe, with each other's help, they can find their way to a better life -- but only if they're strong and can fight the demons that brought them here in the first place.

Basically, a lot of bad things keep happening irl and it has seriously hindered my reading. I don't really feel up to writing a lengthy review or anything, but I will say that I enjoyed this book.

This was a great book. I have read a lot of Hopkins and I love everything that I've read so far. Although, this is one of my least favorite of her works. That's mostly because the plot is a little predictable but it's still powerful. The last few lines were my favorite. That perfect placement of the...

This was so good, but the end was really sad. I kept hoping for Connor to recover but I got the feeling it wasn't happening. It would have been unrealistic for him to be better by the end of the book, but still the jump took me by surprise. I loved his character and wished the best for him, same for...
