** spoiler alert ** I choose this book because it was the next book to be read in the series i was reading.
The book has started in a group of friends hanging out doing the ussual things that teens do on a normal bases. It was a nice day out and all the groups of clicks were out enjoying their day.

The main character is a boy who is very worried about how things are for him and how he wants to change it to make things right for hiself. he also is the kind of boy that cant hold something back that he has done even when it wasnt intentionally to happen.

In the story there is a group of friends. All of them but one are on the basketball team. They had a game that was to recomend them to go to the playoffs. The boys won the game and planed on celabrating with a good cuple of beers. So they all were out having a good time because they have won their game. Then they all got into the truck that they were all driving in. All of them were drinking except one of them. And they all didnt want to have the one person that wasnt drinking drive to they kept going on with what they where doing. In the end thought it had come down to a big tragic accident, that happend to end up killing one of the boys.

The problem is that Andy the one that was driving cant get over the fact that he killed one of his best friends. So now he is all weird acting towards everyone and isnt being normal as he is. All of his friends are living life while it still is going for them, but Andy just doesnt seem to get the gilt of killing his friend out of his head.

The problem isnt really solved in the story. It had came out to be a bloody mess. It was a day that Andy was suppose to go back to school. He was on his way, but turned around and headed back to his house. When he got there all he did was think about the death of his friend. With all the thoughts and gilt that he had in his mind, he graved his fathers shotgun and pulled the triger and shot himself the head. Then the police where called by a neighboor and before they could get there Andy's little brother was the one to notic his own big brother's brains splattered all over the wall, bed,and floor of his room.

My opinion on the book is that it was good. The only thing was that the end was sad and i wouldnt want to ever be ng the shoes that he was in.
