This book is amazing. It tells the story of a girl who, on the cusp of graduating from high school, accidentally runs over one of her classmates and kills her.
I know, from this description it doesn't sound very good, and maybe even a little morbid, but it is a fascinating human interest story. Instead of following the victim, as most novels of this type do, Moriarty describes what life is like in the aftermath of the accident for the driver and those close to her.
It doesn't read like a crime novel at all, but instead focuses on the human elements of the fallout. It's a gripping story that catches your interest from the first page. It is sad, of course, but also heartwarming in places. I couldn't put it down.
