The Last Leaves Falling - Sarah Benwell

My god, this book is so beautiful and depressing, more so than most books I've read in my life. Don't read this if you're feeling down.
It's a story of a teenage boy who's been diagnosed with ALS, a degenerative disease with no cure with only 2 years to live. As the book progresses, his disease slowly progresses, and...the ending, shit it just killed me, I feel so messed up reading this and it was done so well.
There's quite a few mentions to depression and suicide and clinical illnesses. Really powerful. 5/5
