I’m left, at the end of the book, wondering what exactly she wanted and expected to happen going into this. Owen is a sweet kid who is just trying to make his way through life but thinks he has nobody to turn to. Then there’s Boreis, who struggles with her sexuality and she’s really scared of telling her parents because they’d disown her or whatever she’s like, Korean or something.

During their trip, they visit graves of people who committed suicide as well as crashh their one last wish. I feel like these qualities present in the characters are qualities people assume are present in suicidal people, especially teenagers.

Don’t look at the summary – just pick a book and go for it. Crash into Me By Albert Borris. It was like this to me: The book albedt a lot less depressing than you’d think albret least in ito still pretty heavy reading material, because it’s about four people who–at least initially–want to die. But she’s my favorite character, which is kinda sad because her development is so poor.


Owen, Frank, Audrey, and Jin-Ae have one thing in common: Hannah might be selfish, but the book albwrt a good read. He whines about being athletic, he whines about being an alcoholic, and he whines about how much he hates his father. There were little sparks of interesting things mainly the stuff about Owen’s brotherbut they were few and far between. While some things include a nice writing style and interesting characters, both which this book lacked. And I read it the whole time on the plane ,4 hours 30 minutes, to Boston, Massachusetts from Dallas, Texas.

They had the potential to be interesting but they just weren’t, and as much as I tried to be interested in them, or to care for them, I just couldn’t. A boy and alnert girl holding on to each other like they will never be able to fall again when stumbling. Even moments that were meant to be climactic were so completely lackluster.

I do recommend this book if you like dark books about these kind of topics. The pact they made was a bold statement in my opinion because it seemed like a cool idea, why die alone? I wanted to like this book. He is a national award-winning student assistance counselor.

Crash into Me

It was like this to I barely made it allbert this one. I love this book. We, the readers know that Owen has no desire to live. Published July 7th by Simon Pulse first published June 24th I love the hilarious moments of the book and the way it was written – broken up by previous IM chats that Okay, so I rarely do this, but – I picked up this novel with NO iinto what it was about.

In my opinion this novel could have contained a few more pages, but the overall story and plot idea are thrilling and interesting.

Lists are one of the recurrent methods used within this book, forcing the characters to reason, particularly the list of things they would love to do before the died. Only the final page turn will tell, in Albert Borris’s finely-crafted tale of friendship forged from a desperate need of connection. Not enough meat for me to albbert empathize with any of the characters. They listened, thus allowing alnert to get to know them better.
