Summary:

Leia Turner has spent half of her life with an alcoholic dad, a brother who cuts himself, and a mom who can't stand up for herself. She's encountering the usual teen problems on top of that: a ton of homework, a best friend who's gone off to be a minion of Melinda Braff, the Queen Bee, and a boy who is clueless about her feelings for him. Juggling all these problems when you're just in ninth grade is bound to get you stressed. Leia is no longer the usual fun-loving, talkative girl. She can't take the weight of her family and school anymore. So she decides to overdose and end her suffering. Before going through with her plan, she writes a note to everyone, letting them know why she killed herself and why they should change themselves for the better. But when she wakes up in a hospital and not on a cloud somewhere above the sky, she knows that there will be consequences. Especially since the entire population of Woodbridge, California knows all of her last thoughts about everyone. Can Leia survive, or will she drown in her sea of sadness once again?

Okay.... I LOVED this! But I was actually thinking it could have been a lot better if it was longer.. You just kinda left me hanging at the end.. I want to know what happens with her and Hunter, with her and her brother, with her and her classmates.. But it was really good, and I enjoyed it. There should be a second one! (:

This is amazing! I am instantly drawn in...

 

I just have one question.

 

Do you use yahoo answers?

 

About a year ago, a question was submitted asking about what would happen to a teenage girl after a failed suicide attempt... Would she go to theropy, rehab or just back to school? Are you the person who asked this question?

"Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog: you understand it better, but the frog dies in the process." -E.B. White

This is a very creative plotline. You know all those stories where the main character commits suicide in the end? This is the opposite. And it's about the consequences of a failed attempt- which no one has ever written about before. The part where I can relate the most to is Mrs. Grisholm, and how there's always someone who doesn't actually want to help for the other person's good; usually, they think of themselves as the knight in shining armor and imagine the other in their arms, crying out of relief and the realization that they're not alone. Yup, those people are pretty much the most annoying people in the world (especially if nothing's wrong with you, you've actually been having a great day, and they come over and plant an anvil in the middle of your smile)
