Before We Go Extinct, a young adult novel by Karen Rivers tells a powerful story about grief, trauma, and friendship. Praise for Before We Go Extinct "Before We Go Extinct explores the trauma of suicide from both the perspective of the one who dies and the ones who are left behind. This is a book about the importance of experiencing and ultimately overcoming grief by connecting to others who have been grief-stricken themselves." VOYA, starred review "More important is the personal journey JC takes to reconnect with his father, make new friends, and recapture his sense of self along with his voice.

The author skillfully pulls together the disparate parts of JC's life through his deeply felt, sometimes humorous, first-person narration. JC's voice, spoken and unspoken, rings with a note of authenticity." Kirkus Reviews "The storys strength lies in JCs thoughtful, honest contemplation of his grief. Secondary characters also add emotional depth to his story." School Library Journal
