I enjoyed this reading this book. I thought that it was written very well and was interesting and cool. The story was amazing, it was terribly sad and depressing which made it more intriguing
Critical Analysis
Dear Mom, By the time you read this I'll be gone. I just want you to know that there was nothing you could have done to stop this. I know you always tried your best for me, and if anyone doubts you, just show them this letter. I don't know if I can really explain why I did this. I guess its because I know that I'll never be happy. I know that everyday of my life will hurt and be a lot more bad than good. It's entirely a matter of, what's the point in living?
