Question? Your opinions would mean a lot

Right so lets momentarily forget the fact that it's been months since I've updated my fic (sorry, I'll get around to that soon!) but I have a question. So I fucking love writing, and it was this very site that inspired me to actually make it a hobby as opposed to having all these stories in my head and the occasional essay for school, before I knew it writing books became a huge dream and aspiration of mine (next to the life long wanting to be in a band dream - which I've also been working on for quite some time now!). Believe me I cringe at the fan-fiction 15 year old me wrote but now I'm not too bad, not to brag (seriously I don't mean to) but a story got almost 1000 views last time I checked so that counts for something right!? Last year I tried writing my first book, and failed miserably... don't get me wrong I love the story but mentally I didn't have the energy to write since I was feeling really low. The plot was also filled with holes and the villains underdeveloped and God knows how I left that happen because the bad guys are always the best! So said story has taken a back seat, but I got hit with a new one! Now, I'm trying to write a book on teen suicide. Basically it's a series of diary entries from a kid dealing with the suicide of their best friend, but I'm trying not to make it too triggering or depressing. The main aim of it is to raise awareness to bulling, depression, suicide etc but it's still going to be a story that I hope will be interesting (considering I have a massive plot twist in mind!). Think The Perks of Being A Wallflower meets 13 Reasons Why but... more focus on those dealing with the aftermath of a suicide. I've been too busy to write recently but my aim is to have it done by next year. I say that because I intend on going to Reading (festival) 2015 but before it I can try spend a few days in London hopefully talking to publishers (because all the Irish ones are practically non-existent). I'll be 19 then so it shouldn't be a problem! I'll find out more on publishers and all that later but my question is that I want to know if you think that would be a story worth reading? Seriously, any feed back will do!
