My Beautiful Failure
by Janet Ruth Young
Published: November 13, 2012

From Goodreads:
A haunting account of a teen boy who volunteers at a suicide hotline and falls for a troubled caller.Billy is a sophomore in high school, and twice a week, he volunteers at Listeners, a suicide hotline.

Jenney is an "incoming," a caller, a girl on the brink.

As her life spirals out of control, Jenney's calls become more desperate, more frequent. Billy, struggling with the deteriorating relationship with his depressed father, is the only one who understands. Through her pain, he sees hope. Through her tears, he feels her heart. And through her despair, he finds love. But is that enough?

Acclaimed author Janet Ruth Young has written a stunning and powerful story with no easy answers; it is about pain and heartbreak, reality and illusion, and finding redemption and the strength to forgive in the darkest of times.

  2. The book definitely sounds interesting but I've started to read too many contemporary books with way to much heartbreak in them and it's getting harder to get through them. Anyway I hope you like the book when it comes out and when you read it.
