Trigger Warning: Teach Me to Forget deals with attempted suicide, suicidal thoughts, cutting, severe depression, how suicide affects the people who are left behind, and the feelings of helplessness and grief that come after tragic accidents.

Teach Me to Forget is not an easy read, by any means, but Erica M. Chapman has written about tough topics with sensitivity and understanding and given a voice to all those who have to deal or have dealt with these issues.

Mandy Curtis's photo About the Author: Mandy is a small town girl living in a nerdy world, or—if you want to get literal—an editor/writer living in Austin, TX. In addition to yearning for YA books—the more dystopian or fantastical, the better—she can also be found swooning over superheroes, dreaming of The Doctor and grinning at GIFs.
