Who would do something so terrible?
Certainly not someone like Devon—straight-A student, soccer player with Olympic dreams, more mature than her own mother. But desperation and panic drove her to do what most people can’t even imagine. Now Devon ’s in a juvenile detention center charged with attempted murder. If she’s tried as an adult, she faces life in prison. Does Devon deserve that punishment? Your answer depends on whether you believe her story.
I already read this, and to put it easily: Fan-freaking-tastic. This will be the book everyone is talking about. It's wonderful. You have to check it out! Oh, and sorry for the poor cover picture, the best on I could find. Oh, and from the summary you can't really tell what the book is about so much, but just trust me with it.
dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can't.
Devastating, hopefully, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend's suicide. With the help of her family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn't die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid's descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid-and Caitlin herself.
I'm reading this one right now and am loving it. It's so unique.

This one looks good to, like a prank gone bad kind of book.
Oh, and if you're on my blog right now, you probably see a new layout, and google readers you should visit my blog to check it out too. It may seem like I have multiple personalities (Khy.) BUT I don't. I just get bored. That gorgeous picture in the header is found here, and don't thank me, thank Irineya for it.
