It's like Thirteen Reasons Why meets The Fault in Our Stars.

Despite its heavy theme on suicide and bullying, I still consider it an easy read. The constructed words are comprehensible and relatable to some extent.
One thing that sticks to me is the main protagonist's motivation to go on with life just because she wants to finish a novel. Small things like that matter to some people.
The inclusion of a boy named Santana can be a redeeming factor in the story, but I consider it overdone.

By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead is a difficult book. I'm not sure it would be accurate to say that I enjoyed it on any level, but I nonetheless felt engaged and curious as to how events would unfold. The very things that make it an uncomfortable read are the things that give it such a sense of realism.

Daelyn is detached from her surroundings and the people around her and this distance is skilfully portrayed by Peters, who gives her protagonist an unusually-closed first person voice. As I was reading, the psychological term 'dull affect' kept running through my head. It is difficult to empathise with Daelyn because she holds the reader at arm's length, just as she does with her parents, Santana and her fellow students. In contrast, the gestures of the people who love her and who are reaching out to her seem particularly clear.

I think the discussion of bullying and its effects in By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead is extremely important. I believe suicide should be talked about as well, although the shopping list of methods seemed as though it could act as encouragement to a reader who was in a similar place to the protagonist. As an adult, I was able to question whether Daelyn's perceptions were correct, or greatly influenced by her mental health issues. I am not sure whether younger teen readers would be as quick to search for flaws, which is why I feel that this novel is better suited for an upper secondary level. It would be an excellent book to study in a class situation and a very good one for parents to discuss with their teenagers as well.

By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead is not a fun book, nor an easy one. But it made me think and had enough depth that I questioned what I was reading and what it meant. In a young adult market that is dominated by fluff, that's a welcome change. ( )

Haunting, to say the least. ( )

I picked this one up without reading any reviews, thinking it would be a light read. This was one book I couldn't put down. It was sad, scary and left me shaken. Daelyn is a young girl who has tried in the past to commit suicide, while she has failed her previous attempts; this time she finds herself on a website that is dedicated to assisting in suicides. The website let's the user choose their date of completion, and gives them a forum to purge or cleanse on. Daeyln's story starts at 23 days and counts down from there. We get her back story in postings on the forum, and meet Santana, the boy who lives next to her school. Santana makes an effort to talk to Daeyln, though she can't speak due to her most recent suicide attempt. Even though Daeyln doesn't want it to happen, she starts to like Santana.
The end was a bit abrupt for me, I really do need to know if she completed or went out with Santana for his birthday. ( )

If you want to know what it is really like to be bullied, read this amazing book. Before I read it, I read reviews that mentioned how graphic it is in terms of describing suicide methods (it's pretty clinical, actually), but what they didn't mention was how Peters totally gets what it's like to be bullied, how other people around the victim respond, how it makes the victim feel inside. To someone who has not experienced this particular version of hell, Daelyn might seem to be self-pitying, but you can't be battered by society for so long without being scarred. The best part, though, is that hope is woven throughout this short novel. As a survivor, I came away with the very strong message that "it does get better." I just hope that those who are currently going through this can get the same message from this book. ( )
