Read in February, 2012

I came across this book by accident. A random tweet announced that it was being offered free for one day, so I snapped it up, knowing nothing about it. Then I started reading it and couldn't put it down.

One reason this book pulls you in is that it's a mystery. From the first page, no one knows what those two girls were doing up on that FunTown ride late at night or why they fell. Emily's in a coma, and Robin's trying to remember what happened.

You also read it because Robin's an interesting, likable heroine (you gotta like someone who refers to a bad manicure as "nail fail.") You hope she gets together with Reno, her friend but not boyfriend, and that she works things out with her mother. You hope that Robin recovers fully from her traumatic brain injury, and you especially hope that Emily wakes up.

Set in a lower-income neighborhood near Orlanda, Florida, this story is gritty, realistic, and tender. I'm glad I discovered it.
