Letters to Aly
Surviving My BFF's Suicide
ABOUT THE BOOK
How do you survive your best friend’s suicide?
Alyessa jumps to her death two days after her 16th birthday. Her best friend Lee-Ann blames the tragedy on her failure to answer Aly’s last phone call. Haunted by what-ifs, stressed out by the looming ‘O’ Levels, and troubled by fraught relationships with her parents and on-off boyfriend Nate, Lee-Ann begins to contemplate suicide too.
In Lee-Ann’s searingly honest diary entries, she exposes the wound of having a loved one gone too soon. This true account of a teenager’s journey reveals anger and despair at its most raw, and eventually hope as she begins the slow and painful recovery to live again.
