** spoiler alert ** This book was heartbreaking, because the situation is so painful. It made mee wonder what my decision would have been if I was in the main character's shoes. Die with your family, or go on living with your heart full of pain and regret? I was glad with her final choice, because she saw that, even though there would be a lot to deal with, she could go on. I love this book because of the real emotion in it.

“If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay.”
