    not bado stars—as per ratings guidelines—because it was okay.i found the first person present tense distracting, as i did the parentheticals. some characters served no function that i could detect, and some were drawn far too clumsily to be effective. the bit with (view spoiler)[harbinger, the site admin, (hide spoiler)] annoyed me three different ways.but the thing that drew me to this story and into a totally coincidental buddy-read with author Alexis Hall was pretty well-represented thro [...]

    This book stomped on my heart and tore me in half. It left me feeling extremely emotional, and it's definitely a book that will make some people cry.I read this book and fell in love with the character Vince. He was someone who could appear unsympathetic and cruel. His life had not been easy and loss seemed to be all he knew. I found it hard to imagine a life where he was so unwanted. It was a heartbreaking way to start off the book. He sees suicide from the beginning, it's always there and beco [...]

    I honestly cannot write a review for this book. Not now, probably not ever. Also, I'm choking up again.So I'm not going to talk about plot/characters or anything of the sort. I just want to mention a couple things.This book is the kind of book that makes you want to change all your other ratings to one star because there is just so much distance between those books and this one, the kind of book that instantly enters your list of favourites and starts kicking the others in the balls just for the [...]

    I'm physically and emotionally exhausted. That was beautiful and heartbreaking and poignant and hopeful and . . . just so marvellous.Huge thanks to Jenn for naming this author as a best of 2012 for her: would never have tried it otherwise.

    4.5 stars. This is a well written book about three teenagers who all have reasons to find life bleak and hopeless, and who come together first online and then in person, to discover that sometimes human contact can ease that bleakness. And sometimes it can't.I thought the author did an admirable job of taking the reader into the mind of a near-suicidal teen, and particularly of finding ways to express his emotions clearly and vividly, but without overwrought angst. Vince has good reasons for his [...]

    This book needs a better review so here it goesThe boy that talks to us in this book is Vince. Vince is a lonely boy, his emotions overwhelm him all the time, he goes into panics and just becomes a mess. The only person that has stuck by him is his foster mom Maggie, except the day of his high school graduation she has a heart attack and dies. Vince officially is alone in the world with absiloutely no one who cares about him.His thoughts become dark and he's feeling a lot of despair. Even though [...]

    “He’s like you. Broken, but fixable.” I knew that, only basing on the cover and the title, the book wouldn’t be for the faint of the heart. But the question was: would it be just about the topic or due to the ability of the author to make our hearts wrench? Because it’s one thing using a delicate theme and another thing altogether to manage to make something from it. The subject can be tough but if the form is not convincing, it’s just an empty shell for me.I have a future in which I [...]

    I Could Not Sleep Until I Wrote ThisAbout fifteen minutes ago I wrote a status update where I said that I wanted to sleep on my feelings for this book before I reviewed it. The problem is that it's so heavy on my mind that I can't sleep.This book is so sad, poignant, and beautiful that it's indescribable and there is no way I'm going to do it any justice. I started this book after it was recommended to me. I'd just finished a book that left a bad taste in my mouth and I was looking for one that [...]

    Read in December 2012.Suicide Watch is surely one of those books that stay with you for a long time. It’s about a friendship of three broken and forgotten teenagers. Casper, a girl in the last stages of cancer, Adam a boy whose mother doesn’t seem to know he even exists and Vincent, a lonely boy suffering from panic attacks. All three of them are toying with the idea of committing suicide.The characters are so pained and hurt, but still the story provides hope and love for the sick, lonely a [...]

    This book was just wasHeartbreakingBeautifulRealResonantThere is not a soul who cannot identify with at least someone or something in this book.

    Beautifully stark, and haunting. I love that the author has pulled no punches, but still didn't fall into melodrama. The characters are the kind that stay with you, and I love the process they have to go through to come out the other side. There is no magic cure, no one person that makes everything better, they have to reach out to others to heal.

    So I accidentally read this at the same time as Julio. Review comes with trigger warnings for suicide, suicidal ideation and the occasional glancing reference to sexual abuse. It also contains spoilers which are likely to comprise a significant chunk of my musings, so while I won’t be able to stick them in a tag, I will let you know when they’re about to hove into view.Okay, are we sitting comfortably?I think I was more positively disposed towards this than Julio. It was well-written, well-c [...]

    Warning: There are some intensely personal thoughts and feelings in this review. Read it and I’m sure you’ll know a few more things about me than maybe you wished to. I thought about editing them down or out, but in the end I decided I wanted people and maybe especially the author to know how much this book touched me. God this book touched me so much. I know those kids, I was one of those kids everyday struggling, wondering if anyone would notice or care if I wasn’t here anymore. If I had [...]

    Once upon a time, I lost everything and I was so alone. The sadness, the hurt, it all seemed so infinite. When you're wandering alone in a storm, you can't see the end, or if there is one, and how close it might be.I'm still wandering, but maybe I don't feel so lost now.I'll keep trying. I promise.It's hard being alone. I've been there, I still am actually. This book really hit me square in the chest. There are just so many things on here that I could relate to. I don't have cancer. I am not ove [...]

    This is an outstanding, take my breath away, make me stare off into space not knowing how to express my feelings kinda book! This was about a friendship of 3 broken and forgotten people. People that some of society do their best to brush off and ignore. If you are looking for an m/m romance this is not what this book is about. This story is much deeper than that, and I have to say I stayed up all night to finish it. When i looked at my clock and it said 3:30 am, I got a glass of water and just k [...]

    I am sitting here at my computer trying to decide what to write. How can my feeble words express how this book touched me. How this book made me cry. How at the end it took my broken heart and started to put it back together again.I don't have enough talent with words to express how this book affected me. All I can say is that this was one of the most powerful, most emotional things I have ever read, and these characters will now and for always have a special place in my heart.

    I honestly don't even know where to begin with this review. I had every intention when I began reading this one to sit down right after and write up a review for it, but by the time I reached the end, that notion was long forgotten, buried beneath the pain and hurt and ultimate happiness York's words left me with. I can honestly say that it's been a while since I've stayed up really late to finish a book, and even longer than that since one grabbed me like this one did. I finished it at about 3a [...]

    18-year-old Vincent Hazelwood earns his high school diploma after years of moving from foster home to foster home, dealing with bullies, and feeling apart from the rest of his peers in general. His guardian, Maggie Atkins, made it all possible: she understood him and cared for him in a way no one else could. When Maggie passes away, Vince drops to rock bottom, and he only finds solace in a website called Suicide Watch. Amidst the desperate and depressed souls on this site he meets Casper, a girl [...]

    “But living is getting to be far too lonely.”Gorgeous, painfully relatable. Loved Vince, Casper, Adam. Cried all the way through. I'm the female equivalent of Vincent Hazelwood and this is something I’m still coming to terms with. “Once upon a time, I lost everything and I was so alone. The sadness, the hurt, it all seemed so infinite. When you're wandering alone in a storm, you can't see the end, or if there even is one, and how close it might be. I'm still wandering, but maybe I don't [...]

    Oh, this book. It broke my heart and then taped it back together. Dark, moving, and hopeful. Beautifully written.

    I don’t understand how this book isn’t more popular. More people need to read this, dammit!This this is the book The Fault in Our Stars, All the Bright Places, and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl should’ve been. Seriously, it has opened my eyes to looking past overhyped nonsense. I even went and changed a few ratings of the aforementioned, because I realize I was too lax in my reviews.Suicide Watch is a quiet and honest (without being preachy) novel about dealing with (and coping with) life [...]

    I have always liked Kelley York's writing style, since Hushed, with its simplicity, practicality and sincerity. It is truly fitting and effective to portray vividly and realistically the harsh life in general, as well as ones of Vincent, Adam and Casper. It easily went to my mind, my heart with a powerful strength in which I breathed and felt with the characters's emotions, especially Vincent's. Sad, lonely, desperate, suicidal Vincent.There wasn't a book before that made me tear up as much as t [...]

    Wow I can't review this accept to say it was heartbreaking, sad and beautiful so I'll say thisImagine there's no heavenIt's easy if you tryNo hell below usAbove us only skyImagine all the peopleLiving for todayImagine there's no countriesIt isn't hard to doNothing to kill or die forAnd no religion tooImagine all the peopleLiving life in peaceYou may say I'm a dreamerBut I'm not the only oneI hope someday you'll join usAnd the world will be as oneImagine no possessionsI wonder if you canNo need f [...]

    WOW!!! I have had this book on my TBR list for a while and am asking why I waited so long to read it. If you aren't into books that are full on angst then this book is not for you.Once I started this book I couldn't out it down until I was finished.Vince and Adam are emotionally damaged in their own way and Casper has Cancer . The three young people meet on a site called Suicide Watch which is for people contemplating suicide. This book was so amazing and it is a book that is definitely a keeper [...]

    I really don't have the words to write an adequate review. This book slayed me. So many tears, so much heartache. And yet, so hopeful too. Read this, I beg you. It's not a fluffy romance, and it will hurt, but read it anyway. It's beyond beautiful.

    A beautiful and heartbreaking, yet hopeful book with characters who take up residence in your heart.

    Vincent has a hard life. A product of the foster system, he’s moved from home to home and never been able to find the right fit. So when he lands with Maggie and she takes care of him in the best possible ways--not by smothering him with emotion or with unreasonable strictness--but in ways that cater to Vince’s personality and his story. With Maggie, it seems, things might actually work out for the best. So it’s fairly easy to see why Maggie’s death nearly destroys the fragile facade of [...]

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book but wow the writing pulled me in right away. It was a hard read at times because it touches on a sensitive topic but it also made me laugh and cry. I related to the main characters, Vince, Casper and Adam even though the story is told from Vince point of view. Casper, I loved her, so full of life and strong even though she is dying of cancer. It was emotional, heartbreaking and so full of hope. Recommended!

    First book of the new year I read and it goes out with a big fabulous BANG!!!! I cracked this sucker open, sucked every word through my brain and hugged my kindle when I was finished. This was my favorite type of book to read so I may be bias but IMO was the whole shebang. It's sad and difficult to get through at times, but the journey to the end is worth it.
