Synopsis:
Owen, Frank, Audrey, and Jin-Ae have one thing in common: they all want to die. When they meet online after each attempts suicide and fails, the four teens make a deadly pact: they will escape together on a summer road trip to visit the sites of celebrity suicides...and at their final destination, they will all end their lives. As they drive cross-country, bonding over their dark impulses, sharing their deepest secrets and desires, living it up, hooking up, and becoming true friends, each must decide whether life is worth living--or if there's no turning back.

Review:

Crash Into Me tells the story in Owen’s point of view.  Jin-Ae, Audrey, Frank, and him all meet online and decide to make a pact: to go on a road trip, and at the last stop, they would all kill themselves.

This book is great. Amazing. I loved the characters, especially Audrey. I could relate to what they were feeling. It wasn’t just about how the characters feel about suicide, it’s just how much hardships they’re going through that makes them lovable and relatable.

The premise of the book was what first led me to read it. It’s an amazing reader hook. I fell completely in love with it. 

A wonderfully written novel about emotions, death, survival, love, adventure, living life to its fullest that will leave you clenched onto every page.

That’s it!
