Shakyjake | 5 comments I read a book in 7th grade (early 80's?) about a young teenager from England who was an outstanding soccer/football player that crashed his motorcycle into a woman (I think she opened her door and he hit her) that caused her to die. He leaves the scene without anyone seeing him.

The book is about the horrible guilt, stress and fear he goes through not knowing what he should do.

I remember our librarian highly recommending the book which caused me to fall in love with reading.

Thank you!

Don't worry about the late reply, better than never, right?

I can't remember how I found it, it must have been through worldcat.org or google search limiting to site:goodreads.com?

Shakyjake | 5 comments Thank you again, cool thing is I got my son reading it now :). We have "Amazon Unlimited" so it ended up being free!

Thanks again for connecting me with my childhood! I will have to check out worldcat.... I tried so many different ways to search for it without luck!

Take care!
