All Rivers Flow to the Sea by Alison McGhee

For seventeen-year-old Rose, it keeps happening — the car crash. The car crash that put her sister, Ivy, in a coma with only a respirator keeping her alive. While Rose tries to find support from her reticent mother, distraction from the series of boys she meets at the town’s gorge at night, and empathy from her neighbor William T., what she really needs must come from within herself — a release of what’s been welling up inside. Heartrending, honest, and ultimately hopeful, this is the tale of a teenager overwhelmed by trauma and loss, yet steadied by loyal friendship and the solace of first love.

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.
