Description

In Fierce Shorts Bundle, Vol. 2 authors Jo Treggiari and Chad Pelley bring you heartbreaking yet uplifting true accounts of friendship and what happens when a friend commits suicide.

Love You Like Suicide

Set against the backdrop of the 1980s California punk scene, Love You Like Suicide explores the dark side of growing up. Author Jo Treggiari writes frankly about a period in her youth when she was addicted to drugs and living in a derelict neighbourhood.

After a near-fatal accident, Jo is determined to clean up and start a fresh, new life. But there's one thing she can't leave behind: a tender friendship, on the brink of being lost forever.

Love You Like Suicide is a gritty, true account of an adolescent who struggles against the odds to make a better life for herself.

Partial proceeds go to HeartWood Centre for Community Youth Development.

Before I Was Me

When someone close dies, especially if it’s sudden, there’s often a strong desire to talk to that person one last time. To reminisce and say “I love you.” Or maybe get angry and ask why.

In Before I Was Me author Chad Pelley places readers in his shoes as he reflects on high school incidents that continue to resonate with him years afterward. Drawn from the memory of several events, he writes about suicide with direct yet breathtaking prose.

Not simply a tale of a boy and the girl he still misses sixteen years later, Before I Was Me is also a touching story about loss, grief and coming to terms with the past.

Partial proceeds go toward Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.
