This was a great book, very hard to put down. I read it in 2 days flat.

The story centers around the Churchill family, when daughter Kara, a smart, pretty high school senior, hits and kills a classmate while driving with distractions. The book follows the Churchills in the months that follow.

The dust jacket describes the story as being about the family dealing with the public outcry and community outrage stemming from the act, as well as the town's dealing with the situation.

However, the book is devoted almost exclusively to mom Leigh's dealing with her thoughts on family and motherhood and parenting, and very little to do with the accident at all.

It was a great book and a quick read.
