Glynis Horning's 25-year-old son Spencer committed suicide in September 2019.
"A raw, beautifully written chronicle of a mother's search for pieces of a puzzle that will eternally feel missing, and a heartbreaking dive into suicide's furtive nature and the bittersweet lifeline friends and family provide to keep us afloat ... I know the book will bring comfort to many people - particularly mothers of teens and young adults - who are left with so many questions." Helen Walne, author of The Diving
