Pitch Black: Color me Lost by Melody Carlson

Back Cover: If Morgan thought her life was tough before- what with a drug-addicted, klepto brother and a cradle-robbing mother- it just got worse. Last night, her close friend Jason took his own life. Smart, funny, a good listener, and perfect in just about every way, Jason HArding is gone forever. Someone please wake me up from this nightmare. Jason's death sends Morgan reeling. She copes- or tries to- by attempting to piece together vague clues that might explain her friend's suicide. Making matters worse, Morgan can't help but feel responsible because she wasn't there for her friend when he needed her most. Sometimes she thinks maybe Jason had the right idea all along. Morgan feels los in a pitch-black abyss, and her only way out is to turn back to the one Friend who will never leave her. That was so sad! When I first read that her friend commited suicide I was like no way! And then when she made the suicide pact she seemed so sure, and Grace and Seth did too, and I was like what! What else is gonna be in the rest of the book? It was depressing feeling like that. And I really can't imagine one of your really good friends commitng suicide, that would be so devastating, as it was to those three. And then even more people wanted to commit suicide. It's so sad how teens think killing themselves will solve everything. I mean I've had some rough times but I know they'll go by. Ya know I had a really great life until about when I was 16 and there were a few family issues that seemed unrealistic, they still do today actually, but they passed and became better overtime. Carlson has some great messages for teens. She covers everything so detailed and intricate. She's amazing.
