This week we're recommending Boy Meets Depression by Kevin Breel.

From the publisher:

“Kevin Breel became a viral phenomenon three years ago when at the age of nineteen, he shared his deepest secret: he was leading a double life. On the outside Kevin was a funny teenager on the basketball team whom everyone liked. But on the inside, the pain and shame of depression were killing him. After years of silently battling, he shared his story in a TED talk, Confessions of a Depressed Comic. It struck a chord and garnered millions of views by people who were enthralled with his brutal honesty and inspired by his willingness to speak about a topic that most are too afraid to discuss.

In his new memoir, Boy Meets Depression: Or Life Sucks and Then You Die  Live, Breel sheds much needed light into the dark corners of what it is like to be young, male, and depressed in a culture that has no place for that.  In a society that would have all our children be “perfect” and pressures them with social media images that show the surface, but not the reality of living.”
