The celebration isn't supposed to end in tragedy. The night of their high-school drama group's cast party starts out as fun for sisters Amy and Erin.
Their lives come crashing down when Amy takes the car to get more food and has a horrible accident. Erin and her family pray for Amy to awaken from her coma. But as the monitor bleeps and the respirator hisses, Amy lies somewhere between life and death.
Erin and her parents must find the courage to accept the fact that Amy's life-support system will never bring her back. When she dies, can the family give some meaning to her senseless death? Can Amy's dying become the hope for someone else's living?
Favourite character: Shara
Least favourite character: Erin
I struggled with this book. Erin didn't feel like a believable 17 year old and before you argue that everyone deals differently with grief, it wasn't just that. She was insufferable and unbelievable before her sister's accident. The author made her character appear stupid just to explain things to her younger audience, which to me is lazy. Will probably read the second book just to see where the whole thing goes.
