Cosette Hugo is living in a world of terror. She’s being stalked and tortured by a vicious enemy, while the world leaders turn a blind eye to the daily atrocities. You guessed it, Cosette is in high-school!
Cozy has been going through a lot of emotional turmoil – her parents have divorced, her brother Victor was killed shortly after returning home from Iraq, and on top of it all – she’s being bullied at school, but has no idea why. She just wants to get through this last week of school so she can enjoy her bully free winter break. Outside of school, the town is in a panic over the Poser Gang, who’s list of victims is growing at an alarming rate, and hitting closer to home than she is comfortable with. Like the title suggests, her emotions lead her to a very final decision… suicide. When Cosette makes the decision to end her life, she is worried about the people she’s leaving behind. Instead of leaving them with the questions, guilt, or shame that her suicide may bring, she believes that getting herself killed might be a better way to go. She chooses to try and become one of The Poser’s victims – but this decision brings out a darker side of her that she never knew existed. A side that excites and terrifies her at the same time.
(view spoiler)[Cosette Hugo’s nemisis is Hilda Dyson. Hilda sucks as much as the vacuum, she’s a rotten bitch – and she is Cozy’s Kriptonite. When Cozy stumbles onto the scene of a Poser attack in progress, something inside her rises up. Anger is drowning out the fear she should be feeling – she cannot let this continue while she stands by and does nothing! As she steps in, she is shocked to see that the victim is none other than Hilda Dyson! Hilda’s attacker is killed in the confrontation, and Cozy cannot be tied into this! Not in any way, shape or form! She makes sure there is nothing on scene that could expose any part of her involvement, makes sure Hilda gets help, then hauls ass. The idea of these guys in the Poser gang doing this to anyone else makes her blood boil, and this is how she decides to become their next victim. It would take the pain of her suicide off of her family & friends, and if she could take the gang down with her… bonus! Too bad nothing is ever as easy as we imagine. The problem? Each time she tries to make herself the victim, she ends up killing her attacker! This is where the book takes a wonderfully unexpected and dark turn. Each time Cozy tries to put herself in harm’s way with someone, it awakens something within her – a darker part of herself that enjoys inflicting pain on those who deserve it. She comes down off that high each time like she is sobering up from the effects of a drug. But, just like with a drug, that part of her that is sickened by her actions is quieted each time the high is presented again. During all this, Cosette is trying to live a normal life. She is trying to make her final days with her mom drama-free, but that’s not always as easy as it sounds. Her mom meets a new friend while on duty at the hospital as a nurse, you’ll see how that impacts their life. Cozy starts to spend more time with Chris during Winter Break, and they eventually become a couple. Chris has some secrets of his own & they begin a Bonnie and Clyde type relationship. There is one outing in particular that blew my mind! (An even darker side of Cozy is shown, and I hope that this will be a part of any future stories from Atty Eve in this series – In whatever direction the series will end up going.) Her dad and his new wife (and new life) are the cause of some emotional events after Christmas – Events that will strain the Father/Daughter dynamic. You’ll find out if their bonds are strong enough, or if they break completely. Her friends are around, too. All these things are included and make the story even better. It may sound like it adds up to a lot, but it ended before I was ready to leave their world! It’s very well balanced. I could keep going & going until I revealed every single detail of this – but then you wouldn’t read My Beautiful Suicide and I cannot let that happen! So, PLEASE, hurry up and read it so you can come back and talk about it with me!! (hide spoiler)]
Let me make this perfectly clear, I DID NOT WRITE THIS. It was written by a young girl named Brianna. I just came across it, while looking for something completely unrelated.
It is so good! I have a few followers that will be interested in this, and please, feel free to reblog, let’s get this story out!
I’m unfamiliar with the site it is posted on, http://www.quotev.com, but, if you click on Brianna’ s name above, it will take you to her profile page there. She has numerous stories. I’m going to try to contact her, to see if she’d like to post anything else here.
Eleven letters, ten teens, nine reasons why. The stories will intertwine, and the truth shall be unveiled. But the price is a heavy one. In order for these stories to be told, the girl who knew them took her life. She sent out ten letters to her nine reasons, and one to the person who gave her hope. Each of the ten letters is the same. Each of the ten who receive her letters will learn the ugly truth behind her death. And the recipient of the eleventh letter, the letter explaining how to follow the other letters, will learn what can come from the death of a girl who did not seem like she could change the world.
I love this image. The scalpel as a pen speaks so loudly.

When she said she could do it alone, she was lying.
When she said that she’d be alright,
– she knew nothing would ever be alright again.
Another statistic, like so many before her.
Someone said that time heals all wounds, but,
– when the wounds run this deep, time stops.
Not even a scar has a chance to form…
Pray for a new life, or pray for death?
