In Wills Choice, his mother, Gail Griffith, takes us down the very personal road each of the family members traveled to renew Wills interest in life and to regain their equilibrium in the aftermath of his self-destructive act. Griffith intersperses her own finely wrought prose with dozens of letters and journal entries from family and friends, including many from Will himself, allowing us to bear witness to Wills attempts to explain what even he cannot fully understand: why he did it.A memoir with a social conscience, this book not only examines one familys struggle to overcome depression and an attempted suicide, it lays bare the social, political, and economic challenges that American families face in combating this most mysterious and stigmatized of illnesses.

In Gail Griffith, depressed teens have found themselves a formidable new advocate. And in the evocative and fiercely compelling narrative of Wills Choice, we all discover the promise of a second chance.
