Nine-year-old Teddy is playing next door when his best friend Eric, hands him his father's handgun. The gun goes off, shooting Teddy's two-year-old half sister, Trina, who is playing in their yard - the mother Giselle, by her side. Fault lines appear as Giselle's husband finds himself unable to forgive his stepson, and even she wonders, Where is my unconditional maternal love? As Swick limns the emotional landscape of a family devastated by loss, she poses the unaskable questions: What would you do? How would you forgive? Whom do you love more?

    " One of those "what would you do?" books. Such sad subject matter, but I never really cared for any of the characters. "

    " Super depressing. Sad for the boy who accidentally did the shooting, sad for the parents, sad for the break-up of their marriage, and sad for the "nobody wins" ending. "
