Based on the "blurb," I wasn't sure I was going to like this book. A book about two women in a car crash and the ramifications of that tragedy on the people involved. It sounded depressing and disturbing. As I read the book, I liked the beginning but wasn't sure I was going to like it all. I was concerned that the author would wrap it up in a nice, neat package. By the end, I could not put the book down. It was not a neat package, but rather an honest look at relationships, grief, and the impact of a tragedy. As such, there are moments of happiness and moments of extreme sadness. I will be thinking about this book for a while.

My favorite line from the book: "She began to realize that everyone she met seemed to have stories of their own, most of which were just as complicated as hers. The only difference......was that they wanted to tell her their stories and she could barely bring herself to think about her own."
