Jessa Whitworth knew she didn’t belong in her ex-boyfriend Caleb’s room. But she couldn’t deny that she was everywhere–in his photos, his neatly folded T-shirts, even the butterfly necklace in his jeans pocket . . . the one she gave him for safe keeping on that day.
His mother asked her to pack up his things–even though she blames Jessa for his accident. How could she say no? And maybe, just maybe, it will help her work through the guilt she feels about their final moments together.
But as Jessa begins to box up the pieces of Caleb’s life, they trigger memories that make Jessa realize their past relationship may not be exactly as she remembered. And she starts to question whether she really knew Caleb at all.
Each fragment of his life reveals a new clue that propels Jessa to search for the truth about Caleb’s accident. What really happened on the storm-swept bridge?
The storyline of this book and the magnificent cover is what drew me in. I did enjoy the story a little bit but it mostly felt kind of slow in the beginning of the book for me. Then it picks up pretty good towards the middle. Felt bad for Jessa when they made her clean out her dead ex-boyfriend’s room. She suffers from a lot of blame for what happened to him and you can see the struggles she’s dealing with it every time she tries to empty his room out. This book deals with loss and family secrets that get exposed. In the end, can Jessa overcome the loss of her ex-boyfriend and discover how he died before it’s too late?
