Ok, I must now admit that there are two books of Clair's I don't particularly care for. This is the second one. I do believe that his intentions were good here and I can only begin to try and understand how he must have felt when he, himself received the phone call that led to this novel. However, in his efforts to get his point across, I think his peripheral characters are more believable than the main one. She is too good. Too perfect. Not really realistic. There may be girls like this out the...more
Too hickish for me. Put it down after a few pages.

This book was sad, too sugar-sweet, and poignant all at the same time. Some of it I liked, some was way too sappy, and some of it was just plain upsetting. It had a good message about turning your life around or just blaming others and not changing for the best.
When a judge is asked how he feels when the man he gave a light sentence to, after release from jail, resumed drinking and driving and killed an innocent teenager: he writes this book.

Written simply and not too deep, sometimes very idealistic, but it touched me.
I did a lot of skim reading with this one. It is not one of my favorite Poulson books but perhaps a topic close to his heart.
This is my favorite book. I read this book while in a book group at pleasant grove library.
This book made me bawl my eye out so if you want a crying book it is a good one
This book would be good for kids 16 and up to read.
