Loved this book! I am a sucker for a mother-daughter story, and this one delivers. It alternates points of view between the mother and her teenage daughter, who is involved in a tragic car accident. There is great character development, a really interesting plot, some legal court room drama, and a potential love interest for the mother. I particularly liked the relationship the mother had with her ex-husband and the way that was developed and how they were forced to interact while the daughter was going through this difficult time. Cara Achterberg’s writing is so accessible that it makes you feel like a really good friend is taking you by the hand and telling you the story. I enjoyed spending time with the characters and was sad when the book ended, which is always a good sign for me.
