Impulse Ellen Hopkins read online review & book description:

From the bestselling author of Crank, the story of three kids whose lives collide at a mental hospital after each attempts suicide.

Sometimes you don't wake up. But if you happen to, you know things will never be the same.

Three lives, three different paths to the same destination: Aspen Springs, a psychiatric hospital for those who have attempted the ultimate act—suicide.

Vanessa is beautiful and smart, but her secrets keep her answering the call of the blade.

Tony, after suffering a painful childhood, can only find peace through pills.

And Conner, outwardly, has the perfect life. But dig a little deeper and find a boy who is in constant battle with his parents, his life, himself.

In one instant each of these young people decided enough was enough. They grabbed the blade, the bottle, the gun—and tried to end it all. Now they have a second chance, and just maybe, with each other's help, they can find their way to a better life—but only if they're strong and can fight the demons that brought them here in the first place.

    My friend recommended this book to me about 4 months ago. I read it and loved it. I finally downloaded it. It's a great read and correctly shows what it's like living with Mental Illnesses, abuse, etc.

  • This Book Changed My Life

    By Helpmeworkthisappplease
    I was sad, depressed. Not suicidal, though. I'd considered it a few times, just abstractly. This book made me realize that suicide is not the way to go, too many people would be affected. This book made me laugh, gasp, and cry. This book has literally changed my life, for the better. Thank you so much, Ellen Hopkins.

    This book is truly amazing. It's so relatable with the three different characters' views. I was even pushed to tears a few times; especially at the end. I definitely wish this book would go on forever.
