Publisher Description

An unforgettable coming of age novel for fans of 13 Reasons Why, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year’s Day to find himself in the hospital—specifically, in the psychiatric ward. Despite the bandages on his wrists, he’s positive this is all some huge mistake. Jeff is perfectly fine, perfectly normal; not like the other kids in the hospital with him.

But over the course of the next forty-five days, Jeff begins to understand why he ended up here—and realizes he has more in common with the other kids than he thought.

“With a sprinkling of dark humor and a full measure of humanness, Suicide Notes is quirky, surprising, and a riveting read.” —Ellen Hopkins, author of The You I’ve Never Known and Love Lies Beneath

“Like the very best teen novels, Suicide Notes is both classic and edgy, timeless and provocative.” —Brent Hartinger, author of Geography Club

“Makes a powerful emotional impact.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Jeff’s wit and self-discovery are refreshing, poignant, and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny.” —School Library Journal

Great book but...

This was an amazing book but... it is a little more mature than YA and it should. E in the romance section or a different one than YA because the sexual moments were in a decent amount of detail that you could call it smut so...

BUT THE BOOK ITSELF WAS AMAZING!!

Amazing Read!

This book did NOT disappoint. The story is fantastical told through the eyes of Jeff, a 15 year old who attempted suicide. His sarcasm, and wit never ceases to be amusing. The many turning points in the book are a shock, and were perfectly placed. Overall a 5/5 book.

I thought this would perhaps be about actual chronic depression

It turns out that SPOILER the guy is just extremely embarrassed because he’s gay and kissed a guy he shouldn’t have kissed. I was looking for a book about somebody who can actually relate to me rather than somebody who’s just embarrassed/sad. He didn’t want to kill himself because he didn’t think he deserved to live or couldn’t live with the constant pain; he wanted to kill himself because he was embarrassed. Personally I believe it wasn’t very well written either.
