BANG by Barry Lyga is about a boy named Sebastian who shot his baby sister with his fathers gun when he was 4 years old. The book takes place 10 years later, when Sebastian is a suicidal teen. He meets a girl named Aneesa who makes him forget about his past and he altogether forgets about committing suicide. This is a very eye opening story and I truly loved it. It actually brought me to tears. It was so real and beautifully written. It is very heavy. I really enjoyed the plot. It is a hard book to face but once you start reading it, you get wrapped up. BANG is a totally amazing book you must read.
