A critically acclaimed novel that will change the way you look at life, love, and family.

In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.

              I loved this book. I often find Young Adult books refreshing due to their way of exploring life and this book stuck with me the whole way through. It was engaging and heart wrenching at the same time. And her voice was very strong. But mostly it made me think about how the small and large everyday choices affect our lives further on. I applaud Gayle on a wonderful book.
