I really liked this, I'm not quite sure why, but I did.

Beautifully written. I was not expecting this quality of a story as well as philosophies on life hidden in a teen book.

*tears* So many tears. This book is devastating in its honesty about suicide. Remember: don't choose a permanent solution for a temporary problem.

Definitely a mature read due to fact that it focus on the two main characters planning their suicide together. Told over 26 days this book is all about Aysel meeting Roman who becomes her suicide partner and together they plan their death. Over the 26 days they get to know each other, Family life, secrets and the reasons why they want to die. But then things between them change leaving them second guessing if suicide is really the answer. Rating 3.5 out of 5 stars. - @Fallenangelhushhush of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This was a heartfelt book which I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved the author's writing style, and her descriptions of depression were very well done. Including references to physics and questions was a great way to make the book more interesting- they also helped make the reader think. I highly recommend this book.

I loved the simplicity and yet the intensity of the subject. Its sad to see how much our youth suffer and they feel that death is the only way out. My heart goes out to all those who are experiencing similar feelings like Aysel and Roman experienced. There is always a way out, very powerful message!

This book is my favorite. Aysel is a depressed teen who is ready to suicide. But when FrozenRobot starts giving reasons to live to Aysel she starts having second thoughts. Best book ever!

There are a lot of books coming out about this topic with a romance involved, but I think this one was well-done. The characters were believable.

I agree with the little statement on the cover of the book which said, "One spark can change everything." That literally was the case with Aysel, who didn't need grand proclamations of love from her family or her school mates. All she needed was that one spark, that one person who would look at her and see more than her family history. She found that spark in Roman who changed her and in turn, gave her hope to fight for him. I loved how the author described depression and what it does to a person, and the integration of physical laws and theories while explaining it all was incredibly creative and original.
