This month's pick, isn't by any means a "cheery read," but it is worth your time:
I read this book my Freshman year in high school, and when I saw it on the "Quarter Life Crisis Reading List" I knew I had to re-visit it at some point. I thought, why not now? It's and short read, and it's worth every heart-wrenching page.
I hope you'll pick it up, if you've never read it... or re-read it if you have. Like I said before, it's worth it!
