On Grayling Island, off the coast of Maine, Kelly Kelleher meets the Senator at a Fourth of July beach party. He is old enough to be her father; she is young enough to find his attention flattering. And with an optimism born of inexperience, she believes she can take care of herself. As evening approaches, the two move unaware toward a shattering appointment with destiny. When the Senator offers Kelly a ride to the ferry, it is not love but death that awaits her. Download and start listening now!

    " How delightful when an unknown book on my to-read list turns out to be a) a novella and b) pretty good! Back story - I picked this one up because it's listed as one of Time Magazine's greatest novels. I knew nothing about the book, author or the subject, and had never even heard of Ted Kennedy's Chappaquiddick accident. I do, however, love historical fiction, and I love it when a book gets inside your head to the point where you want to research it's subject matter independently ... I mean seriously, this is why there were no more Kennedy presidents. So a Senator and a recent (female) college grad get into a drunken accident after a party on Martha's Vineyard, and only the Senator survives ... told from the perspective of the dying girl. I would have given this five stars if it had made me cry, but I was dry-eyed at the end. Still, worth a read - especially at 154 pages. "

    " Great, quick read - an imagining of the thoughts of Mary Jo Kopechne in the car as she drowned while Ted Kennedy escaped in the Chappaquiddick incident. "

    " This book brings to life, pardon the pun, the unforgivable death of a young idealic girl caused by the infatuation with and hero worship of a powerful Senator. This should be a must read of every American of voting age. "
