- Customer Reviews:
"Many adults are wary of discussing suicide and depression with teenagers out of fear of encouraging teens to consider suicide. I myself believe that talking about issues demystifies them, and for that reason would suggest this book be put in the hands of any teen who's struggling with depression, academic pressure, or family violence. I also admire that Emerson is Chinese-Canadian, adding a little more diversity to YA literature and chipping away at some persistent stereotypes about Asian characters in books for teens.Dark Side is a strong novel for reluctant readers. I look forward to more sensitive, empowering books from John Choi." (Resource Links 2016-12-20)
"Good YA books about the struggle with depression and suicide, as well as cultural and generational barriers. I'd definitely recommend this for any junior high and high school library." (Colleen Maynard, Librarian , NetGalley 2017-06-15)
