This book is just lovely; so beautifully written.

I can’t even begin to describe how much this book resonated with me.

Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker is dealing with the death of her sister and best friend in her own way: by shutting out the rest of the world. She finds solace in Toby, her sister’s boyfriend, who seems to be the only person in the whole world who understands her. But soon her relationship with Toby complicates her fledgling romance with Joe, the new boy in town, and sends her life spiralling out of control.

This story is exceptionally beautiful, and some of the descriptions and metaphors were so lovely that I read them over and over just to experience them again.

But as lovely as the writing is, the story hit a raw nerve on a personal front. The book is a heart-wrenching account of the catastrophic effects of grief. The characters in the book are survivors of a sudden death. I know firsthand how death can affect a family
