Lucas had it all--popularity, a devoted girlfriend, a brotherly best friend, and a loving mother who would do anything for him. His life was right on course to be successful and fulfilling...until the crash changed everything.

Late at night, during a sudden downpour, three young lives are lost and Lucas, the lone survivor, is left to face the consequences. Surrounded by swirling gossip as to what really happened that fateful evening, Lucas now finds himself an outcast. Shunned by former friends, condemned by the people of his small town, and riddled by his own guilt and self-hatred, he struggles to find hope, find peace, and maybe, even find love.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Totally Booked Blog
"A beautiful and tragic story about love, loss and hope. Wonderfully written characters whose journey will remain in your heart forever."
Amazon.com - Tammara Webber
"Collision Course is a profoundly moving story. Ms. Stephens has penned another story told with raw, messy honesty, and I admire the hell out of her for it. She also writes with hope, and that isn't easy to do, with a story like this one."
Amazon.com - Nicky Charles
"A story of unbelievable depth and a true study of the human spirit, Collision Course will touch your heart, your soul, and drag you through more emotions than you thought possible. This is S.C. Stephens at her best. A must read!"
Amazon.com - Lisa's Reads
"Collision Course is not a chick book. It is a human being book. I loved this story. Plain and simple."
Amazon.com - Autumn Review
"Heartbreaking. Devastating. Hopeful. Collision Course is tragically beautiful story about recovering from loss and finding love when you least expect it, but exactly when you need it. SC Stephens never ceases to amaze me with her skill for creating incredibly touching tales."

    This book came at an unexpected time in my life and for that I'm grateful.

    After reading the Thoughtless series by this author I just knew I had to read everything this author wrote. This book def did not disappoint. My heart bleed for the characters in this book because I can relate so well to them. It will help you put things in perspective following a tragedy and the guilt you carry with you afterward. Even though it's been six and a half years since my fiance died in a tragic motorcycle accident I still mourn the loss. I feel like this book helped me get past some of the issues I still deal with today. I'm not gonna lie I cried because it ripped open those old wounds and brought them to the surface but, by re opening those wounds I feel like I have healed a little more now. Thank you S.C. Stephens this book meant more to me than you know.

    I was hesitant to read this story, because it was about teenagers and I'm middleaged, but the story is so beatifully written. You can really feel the pain Lucas is struggling with - and Sawyer, she's just so strong and amazing. I highly recommend this book to everyonee, regardless of your age- this story will touch you to youe core. OC

    So sad, but so good!

    The story is so good but so sad, about a high school boy Lucas who gets in a car accident with his 2 friends & girlfriend killing them. As the only survivor, he struggles with depression and wishes he would've died with them. He meets a girl, Sawyer, who he calls his angel & helps him get through it. As he starts to move past his loss, he starts to fall in love with Sawyer. She really is his angel & you see why they both survived death, only to find each other. Love this book, and even more this author.

    One of the most heart breaking books I have ever read. I am not much of
    a crier when it comes to books. I may shed a tear here and there but
    this book made me ugly cry. I could not believe the grief and shame
    Lucas carried with him after a horrible car accident that left him the
    only one to survive. He lost 2 of his best friends and girlfriend in one
    moment of bad judgement. He believes that everyone blames him for the
    accident because they all believe that he had been drinking that night
    even though he was the DD. On his first day back to school after the
    accident he befriends a girl by the name of Sawyer who helps to guide
    and comfort him through months of grief. She is such an amazing
    character because she shoulders his grief and becomes his rock helping
    him to survive day to day. Things begin to change between the two of
    them even though Lucas is still in love with his dead girlfriend. I
    cannot even begin to say how much I loved this book. Every emotion that
    S.C Stevens portrayed in the book I felt. The characters are simply
    amazing and the love Lucas finds with Sawyer is nothing but incredible

    Great read but!!

    This is an older title with a new cover rereleased. I really wish if authors are gonna do this they notify reader in summary. For those of us who read so many books we forget descriptions. If it has a different publish date B&N won't notify that you have already read. I have purchased books twice and it's frustrating. I have no problem if you go from self pub to contract w/ big publishing co. and they want to rerelease. JUST PLEASE LET THE READER KNOW!!!!

    Amazing book!

    I couldn't put this book down. It was by far one of the most emotional books I've read in a very long time. The author does such a fantastic job of bringing all the characters to life, you actually feel like you're part of the story. I've recommended this books to so many people now and they all have the same reaction. Don't miss reading this book. I think this should be a required read for every high school student - it's a story of raw emotion, self inflicted guilt, and finally self forgiveness - it's a roller coaster of emotions that I'm glad I experienced.

    Collision Course is a tragic, heart-wrenching story about loss, grief, heartache and guilt. It's also a story about friendship and about love. While the storyline itself is slow moving, the characters are well developed and really draw you in. Collision Course is one of those books that really stays with you long after you have put the book down.

    Be warned: It's a very difficult, emotional read, so be sure to have your tissues ready!!

    Great book

    This is a great book but very emotional. I normally don't stop reading a book once I start reading and have a book finished within two days at most. Collision Course was a book I found myself having to take breaks to give my emotions a break but at the same time not wanting to stop reading so that I could find out what was going to happen next. Am glad I read the book.

    I totally felt what the characters were feeling. S.C. Stephens is more gifted then any Author I have read so far.
     When I started I wasn't sure I would be able to complete the story as it touched me so strongly.
    I cried, felt broken and then was brought through the whole experience through the eyes of the most loving eyes!
     I extremely recommend this book. Especially to those who have experienced a unexpected loss.
    I found closure I didn't realize I was needing. I am better for reading this book!
