I was a little iffy to read this book at first but once I started I barley put it down.
Four teenagers meet online, two know each other in real life, and all plan to kill themselves. All agree to meet and drive across country to a celebrity grave they have chosen who committed suicide, the catch? At the end of the trip in Death Valley, they all kill themselves.
During the trip, each learn more about each other and some even have second thoughts about dying and truths come out.
I liked how there really are no chapters but one continuous chapter. Each basically have a top ten list. Top ten lists of random things, what they want to do before they die, ECT.

The 2009 Battle of the Books was held last night at Silver Lake College. The Two Rivers team and the New Holstein Team joined forces to become New Rivers (or was that Two Holsteins?) and squeaked out a third place victory! They missed second place by only 1 point and the final battle went back and forth the entire game.
Congratulations to Chilton for the back to back championship!
All I can say is, wait til next year!

I hope they can find a teacher. I really want to be a video game designer and all of the jobs are over in Japan, so taking that class seems like the obvious choice. I suppose that is all I can possibly say at the moment, so I guess I'll see you later.
