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?

What do you think of Dylan?  Personally, I'm Fax (Fang+Max=Fax) all the way.  In "Fang," Dylan was too... perfect.  Maybe "puppy dog" is the right wording.  Now that he's (finally) gotten a sense of humor, I'm starting to warm up.  But Fang is still awesomer.

I liked it a lot.  At first, with the short chapters, I thought, "Oh this'll be a snap!  Ten minutes tops."  But I was wrong.  You're a great writer!

 

Oh, by the way, I posted a story about a girl who can jump-if you will- into books like Leia wished she could do in Chapter 7.  It's called "To Kill the Mockingbird" but now I regret choosing that for a name.  :/  

And I love Maximum Ride, too. :P

You changed the girl's name in chapter 3. Just incase you didn't notice. You said Leia, then Lucia, then Leia again. But otherwise it's really great. I love it!

Wow. Great storyline. I was intrigued from the start. And I love how the problems are so real, and the dialogue believable. Post more please! I’d love to see what happens next. :) Can you check out my story: Wandering Soul. It should be on the recent stories page.. Anyway, please keep going with the story. It’s amazing!
