I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from this book. I tend to be a little cautious of books that get rave popular reviews. This turns out to be a story about facing tragedy and growing up (or not growing up as perhaps is the case with Killroy). So many of the characters have faced some huge hurdle or a major tragedy in their life, but work their way through to the other side of it. Carrie not only had to grow up, but she had to experience life on her own first, not as someone joined at the hip with Mike....

Having worked with SCI patients, there was an added, non-literary interest for me.
