Original title: I Was Here
Edition Language: Russian
Genres: YA, Contemporary
When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody, her best friend, is understandably shocked and devastated.
Overall, I thought this book was pretty good. It is a story about suicide and depression and one that doesn’t attempt to romanticize these things either. Suicide is a sensitive, difficult subject to write about and only a handful of authors can pull it off successfully. It’s raw and yes, very sad but also very relatable. I absolutely loved the handling and development of the relationship between Cody and her mum. It's a troubled relationship being pulled apart by lack of communication and understanding. However, the relationship goes through many changes.
