    8. After reading the last perfectly imperfect page of this novel, I took a deep breath, tears lining the edges of my eyes I felt as if I had suddenly realized I had been holding my breath in a completely different space than shared reality, maybe like diving underwater, into a space where nothing existed except the world of this book And it was amazing.I don t typically like books dealing with the theme of suicide too depressing , but this one was different It flowed With honesty Hope With a beauti [...]

    13. This book was very interesting compared to anything that I ve ever read before I found it really interesting how I almost lived in the mind of a brain damaged genius and experienced everything he went through It was just at some points I found myself easily lost in what was going on and the book spent too much time on some little topics that I found very boring I felt like it did this briefly for every chapter and it really slowed down the pace of the book If u disregard that though I really enj [...]

    18. I thought that this was a good book and that it offered an interesting and unique perspective for a really specific type of person It was cool to go through and figure out what the character found out and that was the whole purpose of the book It is a little boring and the end was kind of a let down but otherwise an interesting read.

    19. It s been a while since I ve read a YA novel I m glad I picked this one up While not a YA full of romance relationship angst, it was full of real emotional depth dealt with the subject of suicide in a thoughtful poignant manner Jersey was a great character I felt quite a lot of empathy for him as he tried to figure out what led him to the fateful moment when he attempted suicide I was on pins needles with him as he made lists, asked people about himself before he and his parents tiptoed around e [...]

    20. This book was about a teen who tried to commit suicide and survived with resulting brain damage I thought the brain damage part was well done It was so interesting being able to read from the perspective of someone with a head injury The main character, Jersey Hatch, felt like a realistic character My only criticism about this aspect of the story is that some of Hatch s rambling thoughts could have been edited out There were times where I was tempted to skip ahead as the story stalled.I mainly d [...]

    24. Reviewed by Mechele R Dillard for TeensReadTooSeventeen year old Jersey Hatch cannot remember that day in his bedroom with his father s gun, and no amount of questioning from family, friends, or therapists can change that Why did he do it He wishes he could answer that question, but if he cannot even remember the actual act of shooting himself in the head, how can he be expected to remember why he decided to do it in the first place Only through a painful search for answers can Jersey discover e [...]

    25. I read Trigger in one night, from start to finish Started and couldn t stop It resonated, it hurt, at times I put the book down in my lap because I couldn t read through my tears, couldn t breathe past the lump in my throat It showed me the tragic consequences of untreated depression in a way I ve never allowed myself to consider Where I wanted to experience pity and regret for Jersey, the characters around him demonstrated contempt It hurt, but that s the lesson.Jersey Hatch is no hero He screw [...]

    26. I liked it and would recommend it I appreciated that the whole story is told from Jersey s perspective and not the other characters, since it seems that people with disabilities rarely get to narrate their own lives That being said, FYI the author does not have a brain injury.

    29. A good, good, book Very involved with Jersey s thoughts Jersey is the main character and protagonist I know what depression feels like, you feel alone, and like no one gets you, and your friends if you have any left just seem like trivial people.Jersey from before the suicide attempt felt like this, but even thought after the attempt Jersey doesn t remember actually attempting suicide he dreams about it according to what he sees and observes now The author does a good job of telling what happene [...]
