Read: "Loss Adjustment" by Linda Collins
'Loss Adjustment' is searingly original and heartbreaking work of creative non-fiction. Author Linda Collins, a copyeditor from the political desk of Straits Times wakes up one school morning to the completely unanticipated loss of her 17-year-old daughter. In the wake of Victoria McLeod’s suicide, Collins writes to make sense of the forces that drove her daughter to the act of suicide. Victoria's deeply personal journal of the last four months of her life is woven with Collins experience in this powerful read that documents the fallout of teenage suicide. Collins hopes the book can be a call to action to guard against preventable deaths.
