Goodreads Description- A riveting second novel by Will Allison, author of the acclaimed What You Have Left. A happily married suburban father makes a mistake that results in a teenager's death and sends his own life into a devastating tailspin. Written as a confessional letter, the book is a fascinating and moving cautionary tale that explores the moral ambiguities of personal responsibility as it chronicles a father’s desperate attempt to explain himself to his daughter—even though he knows that in doing so, he risks losing her forever.

I liked the book but I wish it would have been expanded more to explore Glen's reasons for hiding things about the accident. I also would have liked to know more about the cop, Rizzo, and his investigation and motives. This seems more like an outline of a story that could have been more fully developed with more character and plot development. 3 stars.
