Text for Help

There are many crisis hotlines that do amazing work in helping people deal with abuse, suicidal feelings, general angst and more. Still, sometimes making a phone call feels too hard, too scary. But sending a text? Doable.

The Crisis Text Line was established for just that reason. People, especially young people, who need to reach out can often do it more freely and comfortably via text. The Crisis Text Line number — 741741 — is a simple pattern up the left side of a phone keyboard, so you can reach them without even looking at your screen. Help is there, any day, any time.

Someone from the team, which is mostly people in their late 20s, responds within five minutes. The average exchange goes on for an hour, talking through emotions or events. Learn more about the Crisis Text Line, or volunteer to be a counselor... Because reaching for a lifeline should be as simple as possible.

It seems like I should have gotten to this book sooner but I was trying to be fair and not horde all the new books that had landed on my desk and then suddenly time flew by and it was my daughter that ended up putting it in my hands. It's not new. It was published in 2013 but I had to write about this. If you haven't read it yet either, go do it. Now!
I was hooked instantly. It's one of those great books where you want to keep you reading and you don't want it to end and you can feel the emotion right down to your toes. It's a love story about Eleanor and Park. However, it is anything but simple. It's steeped in emotions, life, high school, bullies, family dynamics, drama and suspense. This book had me on the edge of my seat.

Kudos to you Rainbow Rowell! I am in search of everything else you have written!
