Despite the years of bullying in school, Jewel Hart has remained sweet and kind. She has it all—a great life, a great family, and beauty—but she has never been able to obtain the one thing she wants—to belong.
When Jewel meets Kaiden Carter, a good-looking, charming new student at York Mills High, things start to look up. On the surface, he is perfect, but Jewel can’t shake the feeling that everything is not as it seems.
When the devastation of the rising suicides in her school hits too close to home and drives Jewel into a deep despair, she clings to Kaiden’s strength to find her way back. Through the pain and fear surrounding her, she finds hope and the will to go on. But just as she picks herself up, tragedy strikes again, threatening to steal her last glimmer of hope. How will she go on? Can she ever find her place in the world?




This beautifully written and heartbreaking story deals with the issue of bullying and suicide. I rode a chaotic and emotional roller coaster ride with this book not only because of the outstanding job the author did with the writing and characters but also with the fact that these things happen to so many teens every single day and unfortunately, many feel and decide that suicide is the only option they have left. I also loved how the author incorporated the fact that bullying isn’t just done by other kids but also by an adult.

I am glad that I read this and I hope that others read it and enjoy it as much as I did.
