The Most Dangerous Place on Earth

Finished The Most Dangerous Place on Earth by Lindsey Lee Johnson. I received a copy for review. 

When they were in eighth grade, a boy named Tristan wrote a girl named Calista a love letter. He was a weird kid and she freaked out and shared it with her friends. They all teased him to the point that he committed suicide. 

Now Cally and her friends are in high school. The bulk of the story takes place in junior year and then it ends with senior year. The kids are not OK. 

This is a hard book to review because so much of it is a spoiler. It’s also a hard book to love. It’s written beautifully but it’s a hard book. A REALLY hard book. It’s bleak and hopeful in equal measure. (OK, mostly bleak; I lied.) 

This book is definitely not for everyone. But it’s worth it.
