Sunsets Over Suicideville (BoyxBoy)
"People hide things up their sleeves. Sometimes it's cool things, like cards, like magic. Sometimes it's sad things, like scars, like depression."
Psychological disorders are nothing new to Frankie Distefano. He's been around them his entire life, with his mother being a psychiatrist and all, and they never really bothered him. Until he moves to Ravenview, that is, and his life seems to do a complete 180 from the usual patient-gets-mental-diagnostic-from-Ma-and-gets-better norm. First of all, his new town is weird, including the people in it. Second of all, the town neighboring his is even weirder--people from Ravenview go to Suicideville to take their own lives nearly every two weeks. And thirdly, probably the weirdest, most screwed up thing to happen to him yet, he finds himself growing attached to his best friend's suicidal, self-harming and clinically depressed older brother. And he's never been so desperate to help someone, to show them that there's more to life than pills, a bottle and a gun before it's too late.
