ABOUT THIS BOOK

WOULD YOU RATHER know what’s going to happen or not know?
A summer night. A Saturday. For Natalie’s amazing older sister, Claire, this summer is fantastic, because she’s zooming off to college in the fall. For Natalie, it’s a fun summer with her friends; nothing special. When Claire is hit by a car, the world changes in a heartbeat. Over the next four days, moment by moment, Natalie, her parents, and their friends wait to learn if Claire will ever recover.


From the Hardcover edition.

QUOTES

Starred review, The Horn Book Magazine, July/August 2008:
“Divided into a series of brief, subtitled scenes, the narrative eloquently conveys how quickly ‘normal’ life can change into something surreal.”
Starred review, Publisher's Weekly, June 2, 2008:
“The humanity in the author's treatment affords the reader a sense both of grief and of peace.”
Starred review, Booklist, July 1, 2008:
"This will stay with readers for a long time."


From the Hardcover edition.
