This is the first Kristin Hannah book that I read. It's a captivating story that include teenage love, parent's love, sibling love, drunk driving, death, anger and forgiveness. Some people compare her to Jodi Picoult. Since this is the first book I read by her and I'm not sure if this is one of her better or worse book, my review may not be that reliable. I found that even the main character, Lexie, is a great and lovable character; the rest of them are not quite developed and fell flat. The extreme behavior of the mother was quite unbelievable, as well as her drastic change at the end. Both twins are a little weak in description and character development. The plot is quite predictable and the happy ending ended too abruptly...

Picoult has the talent of fully developing most if not all of her characters, so they can be recalled vividly by the readers years later. In other words, I enjoyed reading this story, and finished it in a day...but I may not remember what the story is about down the road. According to some reviews..this is not one of her best, so I would definitely love to read her other more popular books, like Firefly Lane and Magic Hour.
