Shannon wanted to die. She hated her parents, her body, her friends--her life. She never felt pretty or popular enough. She struggled with drinking. She was sexually assaulted. She nearly starved herself. But Shannon survived her pain and slowly began finding peace in her life. With warmth and insight, Shannon McLinden shares the true story of her journey through addiction and depression, offering support for girls everywhere. Like the best-selling Go Ask Alice, this compelling true account of the secrets and pains of a teen girl are revealed with utter honesty. This revised edition includes a reader's discussion guide and expanded author biography.
