Overview

For fans of Nina LaCour's We Are Okay (Printz Award winner), and Gayle Forman's If I Stay, comes a compelling novel that journeys through loss and redemption-a new voice that will resonate deeply with both young adult and adult readers.

From the back cover:

"I knew that kind of hopelessness, that feeling you get in your gut when you're losing the last person who ever mattered to you... You know it's coming and you're afraid it's your fault, and you know there's not a damn thing you can do about it."

In the aftermath of a family tragedy that has shaken everything she believes in, Zee dreams of running away. But that tragedy takes on new and unexpected meaning when she's forced to revisit the events that led to her younger brother's death-a shooting that devastated her small town and left another family shattered, too. As Zee confronts the secrets of the past, she hides her deepening feelings for her best friend, Brenna, afraid of what will happen if she reveals a painful truth. Will a confession ultimately free her? Or will it mean losing Brenna and a real chance at love?

"One of the few books of its kind... a book that will confront young adult readers with the darkness that exists in our world, and offer up a glimmer of hope." -The Booklife Prize
