Hey, my name is anayah. I am 15 years old. I used to think that my life sucked becauw my parents fought all the time and my hrandma told my mom every swcret i told her and i have xhores. But,seing that my lifw is better and i am kne of the luky children it really opened my eyes. I am so sorry for your losses Griffin, i dont know how young you were when you lost them or where you are living now but, i hope you find a loving place to call "home" and stop cutting. Megan i am also sorry for your loss. My neibor/crush's dad has a type of cancer in his liver and lung. He is amazing. He helps out with little leage baseball. He's nice and friendly to the M.R peple in our neiborhood. Im not very religous but, i know he was born for a reason and i think he has finished his reason. Megan the resaon yoyr parents wont let you be goth, is probably becase goth is more than black lipstick, dark clothing and hair dye. There are religous beliefs with goths. I like to consider my self emo. But i dont do cosplay or do satanic rituals. Megan you said you were 13,right. Well, you are ligally supposed to do everything your parent say. As long as its legal. When you turn 18 and your out of their house you can basically do anythig you want. If you do anything dumb or illegal you have to pay the concequences. Your parents wont be here forever and you neve know when they will leave you. Make the most of our days and dont do stuff to make you feel more crappy. Trust me i cut for 1 year and i hate my body more. But writing this has kind of made me feel better, thank you and i hope you both grow up happy and strong and maybe will meet somday. Love you Griffin and Megan. Hope your life gets better.<3

This book is very good. I needed to feel like I wasn't the only one going through this, and this book did just that. Like a V¿lksw¿gen, it's dependable.
