A book by Caite Kelly published in 2013. It's a story about a teenager (the author) growing up in today's society and her run-in with suicide. Not your average, depressing story, though it is extremely raw and real, Unhinged helps suicidal teenagers find a way out and helps friends and families to understand what's going on.
Unlike other books of its kind, Caite actually put journal entries from her suicidal days into the novel to help the reader really get into the mind of a lost teen struggling to find her way. She even included her suicide note.
If you like books that make you cry and give you hope at the same time, Unhinged is one of the jems that will do it for you.
teengirl1: Dude, have you read Unhinged?
teengirl2: Yeah. I can't believe someone was brave enough to write those things about herself.
mom1: I just bought Unhinged.
mom2: Oh, you'll love it. It'll hurt to read, but you'll remember so much about your childhood and maybe find a new way to help your daughter, too.
