I Was Here is about the aftermath, several months later, of Meg's suicide, told from her best friend's perspective as Cody tries to come to terms with why Meg chose to end it all and how Cody wants to live her life now.
This is a cautionary tale of how blind we can all be to depression and the lack of help easily available. Depression should not be ignored. It doesn't go away just because you don't want to think it's there. The insight into depression/suicidal thoughts eerily echo my own from when I was thirteen (don't worry about me, for me it was hormonal and once my body even out I didn't consider it again). This is so easy to identify with.
Even though I believe this story is more important than her other two and should be shared around the world, it lacked that certain charisma that I found in Where She Went. I Was Here is a good book, just not heart wrenching... at first. When you reach the last handful of chapters you will understand why this story is brilliant.
The most important messages from this story:
You have to ask for help.
And keep living.
