I was one of five. The five girls Kyle texted that day. The girls it could have been. Only Jamie–beautiful, saintly Jamie–was kind enough to respond. And it got her killed.
On the eve of Kyle’s sentencing a year after Jamie’s death, all the other “chosen ones” are coping in various ways. But our tenacious narrator is full of anger, stuck somewhere between the horrifying past and the unknown future as she tries to piece together why she gets to live, while Jamie is dead.
Now she finds herself drawn to Charlie, Jamie’s boyfriend–knowing all the while that their relationship will always be haunted by what-ifs and why-nots. Is hope possible in the face of such violence? Is forgiveness? How do you go on living when you know it could have been you instead?
One text message change the lives of five girls. Sadly only one end up dead for answering the text. This book was an unique read. The main character in the book is never named in it.
The main girl in the book you can feel her pain for being alive. The boy she thought she knew killed someone. Now dealing with the guilt on what happen that night with the other survivors. When the case opens up again, Will she be able to handle it?
This book is about lost and couping with it. If your in mood for an new read, then you could try this book out. Did liked the story to the book, but the pace is slow a bit for me.
