We work with teenagers everyday, and since I'm a counselor, I'm constantly on preventative alert. People joke all the time about how dramatic teens are, but any thoughts of hurting themselves is something I do not joke about. When one of my students was wrestling with the idea of suicide, I recommended a book to him (after alerting his parents and using several other counseling interventions, of course). Here are a few YA titles (or books with teen characters) that deal with teen suicide:
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
- The Pact by Jodi Picoult
- Hold Still by Nina Lacour
- By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead by Julie Ann Peters
- Girl Parts by John M. Cusick
