Hey, I just wanted to thank you for putting this up. I read the book today, and it resonated with me. Reading it took me back to high school. To the alienation, loneliness, self doubt, and dead-end sexual frustration of that time, that still lingers in my life today, 5 years later.

A friend of mine also committed suicide in high school. The story feels true. You captured the emotional mess, and the uncertainty. Somehow, it's nice to hear the truth. To hear that others have felt like I have felt.

Thanks again for sharing this story for free. It's refreshing to read something so honest and raw, that feels more life-shaped than story-shaped. I hope you continue writing and sharing it. :)


Thank you for reading it.

I know now that dwelling on or ruminating about a painful subject is not a good idea, but I still don't regret writing it, and I like to think finishing it helped me let go ...
