Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers

"Perfect Parker Fadley isn’t so perfect anymore. She’s quit the cheerleading squad, she’s dumped her perfect boyfriend, and she’s failing school. Her parents are on a constant suicide watch and her counselors think she’s playing games…but what they don’t know, the real reason for this whole mess, isn’t something she can say out loud. It isn’t even something she can say to herself. A horrible thing has happened and it just might be her fault. If she can just remove herself from everybody--be totally alone--then everything will be okay...The problem is, nobody will let her." -Amazon's description

Review: This book moved pretty quickly, it had some great flashback scenes to help you understand Parker. There was a lot of mention of mental health issues in this book, and I found that interesting because as a nurse I know how very real those issues are. I enjoyed this book, it was kinda suspenseful. I just had to find out why a girl that had everything would just throw it away. Read it if your board :)
