A Little of the Book Life

Obviously I love books. I'm here, aren't I? :)

By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead - Julie Anne Peters, C.J. Bott A sad and poignant read, Peters dealt with suicide and bullying in a very real way. The main character has been bullied her entire life - made fun of, teased, physically abused, sexually abused - all for being overweight and not feeling strong enough to stick up for herself. She is determined to succeed at committing suicide and the entire book is a countdown to the day she decides to do it and her journey along the way. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you want ot look at it, the author basically leaves you hanging at the end, unsure of what Daelyn decides to do; you get to decide.
