Author Donna M. Zadunajskyabout this bookThis book is about teen suicide and the struggles they face as they are growing up. I was inspired to write this book because my daughter knew someone who wanted and tried to kill himself. I choose to go with this cover because her friend was a cutter.

So many kids and adults out there are suffering from something we all know as depression. There are so many that we don't always know who they are. They could be the person we sit next to on the bus or in our math class at school. They may not show any signs of self-destruction on the outside, but on the inside, they want to die, or at most, hurt themselves because they don't think they're good enough, pretty enough, or likable enough. But the truth is, they are loved more than they know. Is it that they don't see it? Or is it that they don't think they're loveable enough for us? How is one person born without these thoughts and self-esteem issues, and another that just wants their world to end? Is it their lifestyle that makes them feel a certain way? Maybe a parent, an alcoholic or drug abuser is abusing them at home? We all live and are raised differently, but what makes us become so depressed that we want to end our life? I'm sure most of us have experienced some kind of bullying in our life. Maybe when we were in school, or maybe even at our job where we work. There's always someone who has to be better than us or get his or her own way. Maybe they feel more superior when they're bullying other people?

I don't know all the answers, but I do know that we need to do something about it.
