Life is Precious book

13 year-old Ace comes here almost every afternoon. 
 
"I like it a lot," she said. "I've made tons of friends and they're the kind of people that I know I can rely on."
 
Ace is not her real name. That is being witheld to protect her anonymity. She, and most of the girls at Life is Precious have considered suicide or have hurt themselves.
