I enjoyed this book. I liked the format of 3 different outcomes to an accident. I liked the way most of the characters were developed though not necessarily their personalities. (see the brother and mother.) Each story seemed well thought out. I think this writer will be one to watch over time. She will only get better. There were some problems with this book, however. I noticed some POV problems as well as some problems with dialogue. Some of the teen language especially rang false. I did find the family dynamics interesting, though. Each family has their problem people and these characters are no exception. It was fun to watch what happened with each version of the story. I recommend it.
I received this book in exchange for a review. This was a very interesting premise. In all three novels, the characters are the same. The victim is different in the three. The characters are well drawn and believable. I loved the first and the third novel. The second was much darker. Ms. Carleton does a very good job exploring the reactions of people to a trauma and how they deal with it. I enjoyed the book.
