It explores themes of abuse, love, friendship, mental health and chutzpah. she never restrains herself from pain and from suffering or from the truth. My heart aches for the sick and defeated during SUICIDE KILLS reading “the sins of the father” and specially the suicide of her brother, for me the most heart wrenching stuff is the suicide attempt of the writer, it rattled me vigorously. How much a single person can bear pain is so bizarre. It boggles me and its pandemic memoir caused me to stress despite of inspiring kick. I couldn’t agree more with #me too. the views of the writer exactly voice my heart. I holistically own her words. I strongly believe that this book has sufficient power to change lives.”
