YA Bookaholic : Book Review – Crash Into Me by Albert Borris

When they meet online after each attempts suicide and fails, the four teens make crsh deadly pact: Well, they went and did their thing, visited graves and all that, but in the end they just couldn’t do it. And love made them see the world in a different place.

However, it became more emotional throughout the book. The pact they made was a bold statement in my opinion because it seemed like a cool idea, why die alone? But will their cross country odyssey push them all the way over?

The back sounds morbid, and in all honesty, this book is drenched in morbid and depressed thoughts. Owen has been trying to kill himself ever since he was young you find out why in the book.

But during the trip, what will change? Not a blown up dramatic moment where everything is suddenly right in the world. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.
