Owen, Frank, Audrey, and Jin-Ae have one thing in common: they all want to die.
When they meet online after each attempts suicide and fails, the four teens make a deadly pact: they will escape together on a summer road trip to visit the sites of celebrity suicides…and at their final destination, they will all end their lives. As they drive cross-country, bonding over their dark impulses, sharing their deepest secrets and desires, living it up, hooking up, and becoming true friends, each must decide whether life is worth living–or if there’s no turning back.
“Crash Into Me puts readers in the driver’s seat with four teens teetering on the edge of suicide. But will their cross country odyssey push them all the way over? Only the final page turn will tell, in Albert Borris’s finely-crafted tale of friendship forged from a desperate need of connection.
I can feel the hurt. There’s something good about it.
Mostly it makes me stop remembering.
I picked up this book because it was about a subject that I enjoy reading: mental health.
4 teenagers, all suicidal go on a road trip and visit the sites of celebrities that committed suicide.. Interesting.
I started this book with huge expectations but unfortunately I got disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, you do get into the story and it’s a page turner. But the ending.. I wanted to put the book on fire. When I finished the book I reread the last few pages to see if I missed anything as I just didn’t understood.. Like what happened? What happened to them? What’s going on? Where are the other pages????
I’ve noticed that this book gets many different reviews, some people say it’s bad and other think it’s the best book ever written. I’m for sure not with the last ones, but I don’t think it’s bad as well. But all I can say is that I’m disappointed with the ending.
