Suicide Notes Michael Thomas Ford read online review & book description:

An unforgettable coming of age novel for fans of 13 Reasons Why, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year’s Day to find himself in the hospital—specifically, in the psychiatric ward.

Despite the bandages on his wrists, he’s positive this is all some huge mistake. Jeff is perfectly fine, perfectly normal; not like the other kids in the hospital with him.

But over the course of the next forty-five days, Jeff begins to understand why he ended up here—and realizes he has more in common with the other kids than he thought.

“With a sprinkling of dark humor and a full measure of humanness, Suicide Notes is quirky, surprising, and a riveting read.” —Ellen Hopkins, author of The You I’ve Never Known and Love Lies Beneath

“Like the very best teen novels, Suicide Notes is both classic and edgy, timeless and provocative.” —Brent Hartinger, author of Geography Club

“Makes a powerful emotional impact.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Jeff’s wit and self-discovery are refreshing, poignant, and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny.” —School Library Journal

    By jaderangel
    I never read books but this one i had to read. i found out about this book on tiktok lol. I love it so much, one of the best i’ve ever read.
  • Loved it

    By SoulLessChaos
    This book was so good. I related on so many levels and honestly I would highly recommend this book to all of my friends. I’m glad I went through with reading it!
  • Pretty good, but

    By liv wit
    This book was very interesting, and i ended up reading it in one night. my main issue with it is that things happened in the plot of this story that would absolutely NEVER happen in an *actual* psych ward. I’m gonna keep this spoiler free, but a lot of things just don’t make sense. why would there only be five kids in a psych ward? why was there super minimal security? why did nobody prevent certain things from happening? this is a facility that’s job is to rehabilitate mentally ill people, why are the patients not being thoroughly watched and protected? strange.
  • OMG I love this book!!!😍

    By T1DRose
    This book is so amazing but the title makes no sense to me. If you want a book on REAL suicide read suicide diaries by Jessica a carter. But I also request this book 😉
  • Loved it

    By chip rose
    Idk I can go on a huge rant and bring up specifics as to why I love the book but in general this book just made me feel and that’s a good thing in a book. The feeling that it gets you in. I also wanted to note that I liked how the author gives you nothing about the main character at first and even throughout the book because then your mind just fills in the blanks and you just kinda start to relate with him more.
  • Great book but...

    By Hiannin
    This was an amazing book but... it is a little more mature than YA and it should. E in the romance section or a different one than YA because the sexual moments were in a decent amount of detail that you could call it smut so... BUT THE BOOK ITSELF WAS AMAZING!!
  • Amazing Read!

    By Maddy9476
    This book did NOT disappoint. The story is fantastical told through the eyes of Jeff, a 15 year old who attempted suicide. His sarcasm, and wit never ceases to be amusing. The many turning points in the book are a shock, and were perfectly placed. Overall a 5/5 book.
  • I thought this would perhaps be about actual chronic depression

    By hannah1297
    It turns out that SPOILER the guy is just extremely embarrassed because he’s gay and kissed a guy he shouldn’t have kissed. I was looking for a book about somebody who can actually relate to me rather than somebody who’s just embarrassed/sad. He didn’t want to kill himself because he didn’t think he deserved to live or couldn’t live with the constant pain; he wanted to kill himself because he was embarrassed. Personally I believe it wasn’t very well written either.
  • I read this forever ago...

    By CupieKristin
    Such a good book! I read it when I was about 14-15 and it was so relatable... Absolutely fantastic.
  • Insightful!

    By Ace Fanning
    I loved this book-- quick read, but so insightful and honest! I love the hope this book gives without being hallmark-y. It's real, raw, and yet still inspiring despite its emphasis on the real world!
