This novel is fantastic! I read it all in one day. It was engaging and completely captivated me until the end.
It is a story of three teens who become friends and the way life altering decisions warp the future. Lexi is a foster care child who is sent to Western Washington to live with her only known relative after many years in the system. Her great-aunt gives her hope in life and a stable home. She meets Mia and Zach, twins, who become her family after years of being alone. It's a dream come true for Lexi, until one fateful day when one bad decision shatters the world she knows.
It was heartbreaking, poignant, and beautifully written. This is the first novel I've read by Kristin Hannah but it's so enthralling I will be on the lookout for other stories available.

In 2000, fourteen year old Lexi Baill learns she has family in Port George, Washington; her addicted late mom said they had none. She goes to live with her Great Aunt Eva who welcomes her to her trailer home.

Jude Faraday worries about her fourteen year old twins, popular Zach shy loner Mia. At lunch Lexi notices Mia alone and asks to join her. Mia warns her she commits social suicide but Lexi sits down with her. Mia invites her to her house while Zach is stunned as he is attracted to the new girl, but will not act on it as Mia needs friends.

Three years later, Mia and Tyler go to a dance, as Jude persuades Zach to take Lexi. At the dance, Zach and Lexi admit their attraction and begin dating. They go to a party with Zach the designated driver, but he gets drunk. On the way home, they have an accident. Mia dies; Zach is severely hurt; and Lexi breaks her arm. Lexi is convicted of vehicular homicide for driving under the influence and given 65 months. Her lawyer informs Zach that Lexi is pregnant. In 2010, Lexi is out of prison but needs to see Grace once before she leaves town. She is stunned as Grace is alone and unhappy. Angry Lexi files for partial custody.

The ensemble cast is fully developed while the character driven story line is well written. Although the transition in time in high school is difficult to follow and the underlying cause for the conviction over the top of the Space Needle, readers will enjoy this deep melodramatic family drama as the death of Mia turned her surviving loved ones into living dead.

    Not!

    This book dragged on and on and on persecuting a young girl who was nothing but nice to everyone who treated her wrong - especially Jude who, as a mother figure, was worst of all. Then, at the end Jude accepts her and everything is supposed to be all right? Excuse me? Talk about fantasy and unreality, cruelty and down right evil! I can't even give this book a 1/2 rating!

    The most depressing book I've read in a long time.

    I have read many of Kristin Hannah's novels in the past. I love her characters and they way they compliment each other. However, I had to put this book down after the "tragedy with extreme repercussions" occurs. This may be a spoiler so I apologize if I ruin this book for anyone, but it was just awful. My brother died five years ago unexpectedly and this book just thoroughly depressed me. I was down for days and couldn't pull myself out of it reading some of the emotions Hannah writes. I suppose this could be a reason for someone giving Hannah 5 stars if they are looking for this kind of emotion. I understand that people may love it for the emotions this novel pulls out, but I have enough emotions in my life; I want to feel happy from my books, not utterly depressed such as this one. I don't mean to insult Hannah. I still believe she is an excellent author and possibly even more so for pushing the bar with a touchy subject, especially one that does need to change, however, if you have some strong emotions in your life, give this book a second though because I wish I had known more and I could have avoided feeling this sad..

    Thanks for nothing!

    Thanks to Harstan, I won't be reading this book now because she gave the whole story away! Don't you realize that most people read reviews before purchasing a book? You can review a book without giving everything away...please try it sometime!
