Sunshine is Forever by Kyle T. Cowan is a darkly comic take on depression.
How can an author handle the sensitive topics of teen depression and suicide? It’s a tough road to follow for any writer, but Cowan’s narrative strikes a balance between dark humor and deep respect for the tough issues facing teens. In a narrative reminiscent of The Catcher in the Rye, Hunter details his life in Camp Sunshine, a rehab center for depressed teens. He meets Corin, a beautiful and mysterious girl with a plan to break out of the camp. He has to choose between following Corin and escaping, or staying to finish the therapy he has begun.
I love the preview chapters a lot, as I found this book resonates with much of my memory of teenage years. Reviewers also appreciated the satire and brutal honesty of the tale. You can get Sunshine is Forever at Amazon or at its original Inkshares page.
