“Make(s) a powerful emotional impact.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
“Jeff’s journey is wittily unique, balancing a fresh voice and a uniquely realistic character with comedy and seriousness.” (KLIATT)
“Jeff’s wit and self-discovery are refreshing, poignant, and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny.” (School Library Journal)
“Like the very best teen novels, Suicide Notes is both classic and edgy, timeless and provocative.” (Brent Hartinger, author of Geography Club and The Last Chance Texaco)
“This book is equal parts hilarious, bittersweet, and strange. You will love every page of it.” (Scott Heim, author of Mysterious Skin and We Disappear)
Michael Thomas Ford is the author of the teen novels Suicide Notes and Love & Other Curses. His numerous other works for both adults and teens include some of the earliest books about the HIV/AIDS crisis and several books about the LGBTQ community. His novel Lily was a Tiptree Award long list title and a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award and the Shirley Jackson Award. He also authors a series of novellas starring some of the most popular contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race, including Sharon Needles, Manila Luzon, and Jinkx Monsoon. He has a lot of tattoos and dogs and a beard.
She tells me that the story is extremely captivating and is about a boy called Jeff who awakens in a psych ward and is put onto a 45 day programme where he unveiled what happened to him and why he did what he did to end himself there. She also mentioned that it was actually a very funny book and isn't really another book that is stereotypically about a mental health patient.
Oh, and LGBTQ fans won't be disappointed ;-)
