This novel has a pretty dramatic synopsis. Before I read it, I geared
myself up for a novel that is filled with pointless drama, and a
melodramatic protagonist. I didn't think that I would like it very much,
from what I could gather from the synopsis. When I started reading it
though, it was much different than what I thought it would be. Reasons
to Read: 1.Good portrayal of true friendship The novel's main focus is
the friendship between protagonist and her best friend. Flashbacks are
written so that we get to see how their friendship was before the
accident. These two are as close as sisters. They don't have a perfect
relationship, but the way that it has lasted so long shows us just how
much they care about each other. Even after the accident, it is clear
that the two still do care about each other; although neither of them
will admit it. I liked how the question of whether or not you can still
reconcile with a friend even after a betrayal was brought up. 2.Lexi's
character change At the beginning of the novel, lexi is the typical
spoiled, popular snob. The accident takes its toll on her by basically
taking away everything that made her popular. This forces lexi to
change; for both good and bad. Her development as a character flows
beautifully with the pacing of the novel. When the end of the novel
comes, you can really tell that she has changed a lot as a person
through the circumstances that she is put in. Although I did really
like this novel, I had two problems with it. Firstly, I found the
back-and-forth switch between past and present to be really confusing. I
was glad when that stopped later on. Secondly, lexi could be so whiny
and annoying at times. She whined about the smallest things. She just
expected the world to fall at her feet, though I think she was purposely
written that way to show her change in character and emphasize what she
had lost. Despite these problems, I did like this book and recommend it
to contemporary fans. ARC received from Penguin Canada for my honest
review; no other compensation was received.
