Try Not to Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard.
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again.
Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.

I loved The Secret Year. Jennifer's writing is both beautiful and thought provoking. If you don't already, you should follow Jennifer on Twitter. I love her tweets about the writing process and frequent discussions about the YA genre.
