This book was amazing. The pain Rose describes in the story is simple- yet so tangible. Her story touches your heart and makes you think twice before you judge someone. As Rose emerges from her temorary alternate-universe, she grows as a person into someone you can only hope to be. Through pain, lack of trust, and denial she brings to life the feelings of love and loss. Powerful read. I highly reccomend this book.

After reading this book, i saw how difficult dealing with car accidents can be. Being in a car accident can cause family distress and depression. While Ivy is unconscious, Rose has a fear of driving. She is 17 and afraid to drive. It shows how hazardous driving can be and how it can affect others.

McGhee uses repition and quick sentences to show how torn Rose is by the lose of her sister. As the book goes on, the writing become mores fluid, branching with Rose. Beautiful, poignant prose that tells the story of loss and how it molds us without our cooperation.

This book was a good quick read. It's about a girl who is in an accident with her closest friend.. Her sister. While her sister in in a coma at the hospital she learns to live, and move on. I enjoyed this book it had a good plot and likeable characters.
