‘I’VE BEEN DEAD FOR THREE DAYS.’
A woman. A suicide. A choice. A lie. A truth. An ending. Of sorts.
Life, Alice thinks, isn’t worth living. So she kills herself. But she’s stuck. A fly on the wall. Forced to watch the aftermath of her suicide and its ripple effect on her family and friends, Alice quickly learns that death changes people. And discovers that death isn’t the change she hoped for.
