Annotation
An arresting story about starting over after a friend s suicide, from a breakthrough new voice in YA fiction

"dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can t."

Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend s suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn t die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid s descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid and Caitlin herself.
