The night that Ingrid told Caitlin, "I'll go wherever you go. But by dawn Ingrid, and her promise is gone. Caitlin was left alone. Ingrid's suicide immobilizes Caitlin, leaving her unsure of her place in a new world that she doesn't recognize. She can't enjoy anything without her best friend. But Ingrid left more then just her memory behind. She left a journal accounting her last days behind -just for Caitlin. She travels through the her memories of Ingrid and is in search of a renewal of hope.
Hold Still is one of those books that you have to think about. It is so strong and it is hard to tell if you like it. Caitlin is a realistic girl in a very hard and real situation. At the beginning of the book, she is in a very dark place and you can tell that she really wants to come to terms with Ingrid's suicide. She is a really interesting character. Hold Still had a great plot. It was also very original novel about depression. LaCour is a great writer and captured all the emotions of a teen that goes through at a time like this. I recommend that you check out, Hold Still.
