Perfect Parker Fadley isn’t so perfect anymore. She’s quit the cheerleading squad, she’s dumped her perfect boyfriend, and she’s failing school. Her parents are on a constant suicide watch and her counselors think she’s playing games…but what they don’t know, the real reason for this whole mess, isn’t something she can say out loud. It isn’t even something she can say to herself. A horrible thing has happened and it just might be her fault. If she can just remove herself from everybody—be totally alone—then everything will be okay...The problem is, nobody will let her.


To be honest I wasn't expecting that much from this book I had tried to read it once before and I couldn't read it, but I guess that was because I wasn't in the mood for it, because when I picked it up this time I couldn't put it down. This book really left me speechless.

I loved the plot in this book I found myself wondering about what happened to make Parker so damaged all the way until the end. I also found that the story really made me apprectiate what I have, and appreciate the friends I have and just realise that nothing should be taken for granted.

I found that the character of Parker was really relatable and I found myself feeling sorry for her and really feeling her depression.

Overall I thought this book was absolutly AMAZING and this is definitley one of those books that every teenage girl needs to read.
