This book is written directly to people who are considering suicide. The author addresses questions that such a person may ask, such as “Don’t I have the right to die?” and “Am I absolutely sure?” Reasons why one might be at such a stage are discussed: loneliness, depression, anger, stress, drugs/alcohol, and hopelessness. One chapter is aimed at young people who consider suicide to “get back” at their parents. Quinnett also discusses the possibility that the attempt will not result in death.
