I crawled into Ryan Jensen's bed that first night by accident.
I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister's bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should've left...
I didn't. I didn't jump out. I didn't get embarrassed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.
I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.
The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.
Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

Well worth the read!
What a great story. Thinking back, there wasn’t anything particular in the story that made me want to see how it unfolded, it didn’t have the suspense or the “edge of your seat” factor. Somehow it still had me captivated and wanting to finish the book. Perhaps it was the way the story took hold of my heart, I felt Mac’s emotions. I cried with her. It’s one of those books that change you. It makes you think a little different. I know there will be a larger element of heartache if I meet someone who has lost a loved one to suicide. I have more understanding on how this would impact the people left behind. The ending left me shocked and heartbroken and happy all that the same time. Thank you for this great story Tijan.
The messages in this book are powerful and are somethings that are so so important to be spoken about. Not to glorify suicide but really start to tackle the effects of it on those left behind.
TIjan tackles lots of issues including (but not limited to) grief and loss, family relationships and break downs , anger , despair ,bullying , the pressure on teens in schools and just socially as well
But also friendship, love , growth , healing and most of all HOPE .
Thank you Tijan for finishing and publishing this book . It was touching and captivating and beautifully written .
