The Second Cup (The Butterfly Effect)- Sarah Marie Graye

This debut novel from Sarah Marie Graye focuses on the effect suicide has on those who are left behind.

It examines the lives of four friends, all affected by the impact of Jack’s suicide in different ways and told from each of their viewpoints.

The topic of suicide, along with mental health and depression is often taboo and the author provides plenty of food for thought as the reader explores each character’s decisions, reactions and the subsequent impact on each of their lives alongside the idea that one action can trigger a butterfly effect.

This is quite a difficult read, but certainly a thought-provoking one.
