This is a new book at McMillan that I’m reading right now. I’m enjoying it, so I thought I’d post the SLJ review below for others that may be interested…Oh, and it is a 2010 William C. Morris YA Debut Award nominee too. -tk

From School Library Journal
Grade 10 Up—After losing her best friend, Ingrid, to suicide, Caitlin is completely immobilized. Unable to function, and refusing to visit a therapist, she begins the long journey to wellness alone. During this year of heart-wrenching, raw emotion, Caitlin finds Ingrid’s journal, which not only reveals her descent into irreversible depression, but also serves as Caitlin’s vehicle for renewed hope in the future. The book is written with honesty, revealing one’s pain after the loss of a loved one. Caitlin learns, with the help of new friends and her parents, that there is life after Ingrid.
