You Know Where To Find Me by Rachel Cohn

"Once upon a time, Sleeping Beauty decided to take a nap from which she would never wake up." (p. 12)

Laura and Miles grow up together like sisters. One is fair, beautiful and popular. The other is plain, seemingly ugly, and an outsider. One commits suicide. The other, left in utter despair, attempts to commit suicide. Now the "left behind girl" wonders how do you measure suffering? What do you do with all of the excruciating pain? This is a story about how people are not at all who they appear to be, happiness can be faked, and grief can abruptly obliterate life as you know it.

Another extremely well written novel dealing with similar topics and questions is Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher. I recommend listening to the audio version read by Debra Wiseman.
