An arresting story about starting over after a friend’s suicide, from a breakthrough new voice in YA fiction

dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can’t.

Devastating, hopeful, 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 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.

    " This book will resonate in my heart for a while. Caitlin's pain is real, raw, and believable. You feel her roller-coaster ride as if you were in the seat next to her. Brilliant. "

    " August 2010 - I'm not sure there are words to express just how much this book changed me. If there are words, they are too personal to share. This wasn't just a book to me, it was a lifeline I wasn't aware I was in need of, a way of understanding things I hadn't quite considered before. I started this book with a much different approach than I came out with, but I say that in the best way possible. Most reviews go on to tell you about the book, but you can read that for yourself. These reviews are ways for me to remember just how moved I was by individual novels. Hold Still easily worked its way to my list of favorites, and it didn't have to work very hard at all. I feel as if I should go on forever, but at the same time, I know nothing I say will give this book justice. You may read this book after reading this review and think, what the hell was that girl talking about, and that's okay; not every novel hits home to every individual. For you, this may be just another novel on your list of read books, but for me, this will leave a lasting imprint for many years to come - and I can guarantee I'll be reading this book over and over through the years. Read again 1/24/2013 - It's been a while since I read it last and yet, it still made the same strong impact on me. Such a great book. Certainly on my list of top 10. "

    " I really enjoyed this book because it showed you how the main character dealt with loss. "

    " This book shook a lot of nerves because it was right around when I experienced something similar to what happened in the book. The descriptions in this book make you feel like you know exactly what happened. I wanted more information about what had happened. But by the end of the book I had all the information I needed. Great book! "
