Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year’s Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nutjobs. Never mind the bandages on his wrists, clearly this is all a huge mistake. Jeff is perfectly fine, perfectly normal—not like the other kids in the hospital with him. They’ve got problems. But a funny thing happens as Jeff’s forty-five-day sentence drags on: the crazies start to seem less crazy. . . .

Compelling, witty, and refreshingly real, Suicide Notesis a darkly comic novel that examines that fuzzy line between “normal” and the rest of us.

Keysa, July 25, 2013 (view all comments by Keysa)
This is a book that will make you think a little bit. Michael Thomas Ford created a page turner, and a book you might not want to put down. This story is so realistic in the way it confronts hard issues to talk about, like suicide. It really opens up readers to the thoughts and feeling people have when they are in dark times, and feel like dying is the only option. It will tug at your heart and mind, and take you to a place where you can understand the characters, and feel like a part of their lives. This book is very well written, and there should be more books like this.
