I address this issue because I have experienced depression before and know what it is like. nothing from depression is healthy, all you do is sit there and think and relive the unbearable pains for everyday life.

I think people should be aware of depression because it is becoming more and more common in teens and young adults. some of the effects of depression can be fetal. Thoughts of suicide and other think of that nature. People need to be more aware of the kids in schools and how their action can affect the other person.

This novel inspired me because some of the situation Angle and her brother got in to with Jordan. in some parts of the novel the clues show that angle is afraid of Jordan and becomes somewhat depressed when he is around
