really liked it

After reading two really frivolous, shallow YA books, I decided I needed something a little heavier. Well, this book was heavy and then some. It's not too much of a spoiler to say that it involves a drunk-driving death of a teenager. (That happens about 1/3 of the way through and is not mentioned in the book's synopsis, but there are a lot of none-too-subtle hints that foreshadow it.)

The book was a well-written, compelling story that was hard to put down. However, the story paints one of those situations where there is absolutely no right answer or positive path to take, so it's a tough read. It also felt a bit Jodi Picoult-ish with its emotional manipulation and multiple viewpoints where you can't ever really figure out whose side you're on.
