Ben Heywood saw his little sister Frankie and her best friend get hit by a bus on the way to school one morning. Frankie goes into a coma and Ben retreats into his own silent world of grief. His parents find the Perlman Institute, where Dr. Elizabeth Chase, a miracle worker, works with both children to bring them back to their parents. I enjoyed this book: read it in a couple of days.

Interesting book about bringing people back from deep coma states. Mostly about children and got a little unbelievable at the end, but still a good read and interesting to think that someday this might really happen.
