In France today, one in eight teenage girls attempts suicide. Every day on average, two young people between the ages of 15 and 24 manage to end their lives. "I feel like I'll never make it, and then my future scares me so much. I'm sorry, I can't say it the way I want to say it, so I'll stop." Excerpt from a letter from Sarah to her parents. Sarah was born in 1980. She was a happy, studious child until the day her parents moved to another region. In a few months, she loses her taste for life and sinks into depression. Is she the prisoner of an unavowable secret? Her brother, her father, like her mother, try to help her by all means and Sarah is followed by the best specialists. But the suicide attempts are repeated, punctuated by long heartbreaking letters. No one will be able to thwart Sarah's desire to fly. At sixteen, she ended up jumping from the Aquitaine bridge. Step by step and for the next ten years, his mother tried to understand. She testifies today: a strong and enlightening book on the malaise of young people.
