18-year-old Vincent Hazelwood has spent his entire life being shuffled from one foster home to the next. His grades sucked. Making friends? Out of the question thanks to his nervous breakdowns and unpredictable moods. Still, Vince thought when Maggie Atkins took him in, he might’ve finally found a place to get his life—and his issues— in order. But then Maggie keels over from a heart attack. Vince is homeless, alone, and the inheritance money isn’t going to last long. A year ago, Vince watched a girl leap to her death off a bridge, and now he’s starting to think she had the right idea.

Vince stumbles across a website forum geared toward people
considering suicide. There, he
meets others with the same debate regarding the pros and cons of death: Casper, battling cancer,’would rather off herself than slowly waste away. And there’s quiet, withdrawn Adam, who suspects if he died, his mom wouldn’t even notice. As they gravitate toward each other, Vince searches for a reason to live while coping without Maggie’s guidance, coming to terms with Casper’s imminent death, and falling in love with a boy who doesn’t plan on sticking around.

Don’t ask me if I liked the book, because i loved it!

First things first. The cover caught my attention. I liked it. It reminds me of one of my favorites anime character, ‘L’ from Death Note.

Anyway, Suicide Watch. That book. That book breaks my heart. God, I’m being emotional again. Don’t do this to me.

Peraonally, the story really touched my heart. Its very heartwarming. Like i want to spend the whole day crying in my room and reminisce. The book has great characters. Casper. Adam. Vincent.  They are this kind of characters that would leave marks in your heart. And you are definitely gonna love and miss them.

And when I already finished the book, the feelings were overwhelming. I didn’t know what to feel. Whether to be sad or happy. Nevertheless, it was a good ending.
