Suicide Notes (Hardcover)
Winter 2009 Kids' List
“Everybody knows what 15-year-old Jeff did, but only he knows why. After being sent to a psychiatric ward, he struggles to convince the entire floor he doesn't belong there. Only sessions with Dr. 'Cat Poop' will tell if he belongs with the rest of the 'nuts.'”
— Tori Thompson, Booksmart, Morgan Hill, CA
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.
