Emory, a high school girl, was in a fatal car accident with her brother, Joey. The car accident ending up killing a friend of hers, Candy Mont Claire. Everything seems different after the accident— her friends are different, her life is different, and she feels like a different person. Now she must navigate her life and find out who she really became.
This book a wild array of emotions throughout the story. It’s amazing how the author managed to make us live vicariously through Emory by our emotions. Emory struggles with many similar things that teens go through, which makes this book so relatable. This book doesn’t romanticize mental illness and instead shows the reality of it and its toll. This story also deals with drug addiction and bullying. The cover of the book matches the story since it deals with drug use. I would recommend this book to those who would want to read realistic books about teen problems.
