I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Cody and Meg were best friends growing up and they had big plans to move to Seattle together after high school. But then Meg ends up going to a small school in Tacoma, and Cody stays back home to attend the community college and make money cleaning houses. And then Meg commits suicide. Meg's parents ask Cody to go and gather Meg's belongings at school, and Cody starts investigating the real reasons behind Meg's death.

A so-so book with a not very like-able main character. Still, I read it pretty quickly, but really, just a so-so book for me. I do appreciate that it sheds some light on mental health and suicidal ideation though.
