As 'Thirteen Reasons Why' was for the teenage, young adult situation, this involves the suicide of an adult mother. She gives her reasons in a bunch of letters written to various people in her life.
This IS NOT autobiographical although it does contain certain elements of truth.
Cover by Booksie's Markie Bee.
