Before I let go tells the tragic tale of a young girl that has lost her bipolar best friend. Corey and Kyra were best friends, they were inseparable. So when Corey has to move to Canada she makes Kyra promise to be there when she returns. But when Corey returns Krya isn’t there, she died a few days before their visit. Corey is very confused and devastated, why would she do this? When Corey askes others in the town about what happened, they all push her away saying that her death was meant to be. I think that I had higher expectations that were not met when I was reading the book. I thought the book was a bit sad and I found it confusing at times. Some parts were unrealistic, especially towards the end. I recommend this book for ages 12 and older. Rating- 4/5 stars.

An unsettling story of two friends in Lost, Alaska. When Corey leaves with her mom and brother for Canada, she leaves behind her best friend, Kyra, who is bipolar and has few friends. When Kyra commits suicide, Corey returns and finds herself an outsider as she tries to piece together what happened to her best friend. I was glad the book was not lengthy. I found the descriptions of what Kyra experienced in her bipolar mood swings horribly powerful, which is what I expect the author wanted the reader to know-that bipolar people have too much too deal with.
