There doesn’t seem to be any swearing.

It was like this to me: I think anybody who enjoys a good fiction book ought to read Crash into Me. I have a read a number of books about suicide and suicide in teenagers. When they meet online after each attempts suicide and fails, the four teens make a deadly pact: Personalmente, trovo che il libro appassioni molto. I’d been reading a bunch of depressing contemporary YA often suicide-relatedand I picked this because the cover makes it look like a corny romance with the brooding bad boy and the shy girl.
