It's kind of a more somber subject matter, but I loved this book all through high school and still enjoy reading it today. Telling Christina Goodbye is a tragic description of two girls enjoying their senior year, making plans to go to college and celebrate graduation with their boyfriends. Trisha doesn't like Christina's controlling boyfriend Tucker, but as her best friend, avoids the arguing and lets Christina do what she wants. Tucker has a surprise for Christina, a plan to keep her closer to home and not accept her scholarship at another school. But before anything can happen, one night changes all of their lives forever. Tucker is driving the foursome when they get into an accident, one that leaves Cody (Trisha's boyfriend) in a coma, Trisha injured, and Christina dead, while Tucker walks away fine. There is a twist at the end that is shocking and sad, changing the circumstances under which Christina died. It's a great book if you're inthe mood for a somber subject matter, and is even still romantic with Cody and Trisha after the accident.
