This book is about two teenagers, Caleb and Maggie. The summer before last Caleb had been at a party drinking and on his way home he hit Maggie with his car. Maggie had to suffer many surgeries and treatments, causing her to be in the hospital for over 6 months. Now that Caleb has been released from the juvenille detention center and is coming back to school, Maggie is scared. This book shows how two people overcome what has happened in the past, to becoming friends again. Its hard to put down because you never know what is going to happen next because there is always fighting and something new happening in every chapter.
