Willow, a 16-year-old, is the driver of a tragic accident that kills both of her parents. This story is how Willow deals with the emotions of the aftermath.

Unfortunately, I don't have anything positive to say about this book.  This was actually my second attempt at listening to it, and I probably should have just given up like I did the first time.  Most of the book was lackluster and even though I have not been exposed to this exact world, I found it to be extremely unrealistic in some scenarios.  Others had me guffawing and shaking my head, they were so ridiculous.  Maybe listening to it played a part in my dislike, but this one was simply not for me.  :(


  1. It's been over two years since I listened to this one, but I didn't rate it highly either.

    As I recall, it's written from an omniscient third-person viewpoint, which made it hard for me to relate to the feelings of the main character and, I think, probably contributed to some of unrealistic-ness of the whole thing.

    1. Alisonwonderland ~ I can't believe you remember the viewpoint. I just finished it and don't remember. Out of sight, out of mind. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
