By The Time You Read This I'll Be Dead by Julie Ann Peters has to be one of the best books I have ever read. It's About a girl named Daelyn who has been bullied her whole life. She becomes broken beyond repair and has failed suicide many times. Finally though, she finds a website to help her and sets her next, and hopefully last, suicide date.

I found it so relatable. No one cares about her, she's called a freak, and her parents don't really care. They say they lover her and tell her they're glad that she's there, but the have to say that. The therapist gave them no choice.

Another thing I loved about this book was the suicide descriptions. It talked about drowning, fire, cutting, etc. It gave pain on a scale of 1-5, the difficulty, the time, and the description. That, I thought, was very neat. I even learned some new things. I hope I find at least one more book that has that. I haven't found it yet though. "Sob"

Finally, at the end, I died inside. It left you hanging. I would love for a second book to come out. How does her attempt go? What's to come of the boy? What do her parents do? I can't help but think about it.

So, in conclusion, if you ever come across this book, get it! It opens your heart, eyes, mind, and soul. Honestly, there aren't exactly words to explain how I feel towards this book. It made me laugh, cry, scream, and bored at the same time! Yes, it was that good!
