Alice Hoffman’s newest book will not disappoint her fans. A meaty read, full of emotion and depth will be hard to put down.
Shelby is driving when a crash on an icy road changes the trajectory of her life. Her best friend lies in a vegetative state and the guilt is to large a burden for her to manage. Emotionally shot, she withdraws from life.
This is Shelby’s story and it will touch your heart. You will root for her and wish you could wrap your arms around her, or slap her and say, “Snap out of it!” But, if you’ve never experienced survivor’s guilt it’s hard to say how you’d handle it differently.
I totally was engrossed in this book and hate that it’s ended. I say add this to the long summer reading list. Could be a great rainy day vacation read because you won’t want to put it down.
Strong character development and a story that will allow you to emotionally connect. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me an advance copy to read and review. 5 stars for this one.
