Trisha Thompson and her best friend Christina are having a great senior year. Trisha and her boyfriend, Cody, are making plans to attend Indiana University together in the fall, while Christina has already received a scholarship to the University of Vermont. Everything would be perfect if only Trisha got along with Christina’s controlling boyfriend Tucker, who is trying to convince Christina not to go away for college. But suddenly their lives change one night when Tucker is driving the four home from an away basketball game. When his car hits a patch of black ice and overturns, Tucker walks away with barely a scratch, but Trisha is injured, Cody is in a coma, and Christina is dead. Those left behind must learn that it takes time for their scars—both visible and not—to heal. And they must find the courage to move on with their lives.

    " This book is the definition of me crying. It's been a few years since I've read this book, but I remember crying so much when I read it! Overall a good book from what I remember. Lurlene McDaniel knows how to write in such a way to grab and hold any girl's attention with books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arielle | 2/7/2014

    " This is what I expect from a Lurlene McDaniel book -- a little over the top, a little tear-jerky, a little flat with the characters, a little clunky with the writing, but a book that makes me interested in their plight and caring about whether they make it and how. I think this is one of her better efforts, based on the two others I've read. Certainly not a prize winner, but it succeeds in what it's trying to do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 1/31/2014

    " So sad and life changing. I cried throught the whole book... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abi | 1/28/2014

    " I really liked this book. It was touching and feels good to read if someone you know has died it's comforting because you can relate to the emotions and feelings. The only thing is that the back of the book tells you who dies so it leaves a big part of the plot that you allready know. I love Lurlene McDaniels books but it seems she has a death obsession. "
