Book Review Blurb: The Valedictorian of Being Dead by Heather B. Armstrong

I’m constantly amazed at the strength people who struggle with depression, anxiety, or other forms of mental illness exhibit when they so bravely and baldly tell their tales… Armstrong does a marvelous job explaining her life and struggles, and her decision to die (almost) several times a week for several weeks in the hope of stopping her downward spiral. This is a heartbreaker of a story, told with wit and snark and an unflinching honesty that sends you alternating between laugh-out-loud hilarity and tears-pouring-down-your-face devastation. Reading about the experiences of Armstrong, her daughters, her parents, and her extended family was painful but also full of glimmers of hope and optimism that I hope find their way into the lives of people who need them…
