Reillin Wood | 2 comments I think that this book has dolphins in it...?
I read it in either 2015 or 2016.
Plot details that I remember:
- Main character wishes that she had gone with her mother (who was killed in a car accident involving a drunk driver) to get ice cream to prevent it
- Hides a photo of her mother in her closet (?) so that she doesn't forget what she looks like
- Her brother's first words were at a grocery store when an old woman tooted
- Blind friend said before her surgery that a good thing was that her parents would never grow old in her mind
- Father tells main character that he lost a patient, she asks who or why and she says that she somehow knew that the patient was a boy

Sad stuff...
