Goodreads Synopsis:

On the night of Alex Carmody’s sixteenth birthday, she and her best friend, Cass, are victims of a terrible car accident. Alex survives; Cass doesn’t. Consumed by grief, Alex starts cutting school and partying, growing increasingly detached. The future she’d planned with her friend is now meaningless to her.

Meg Carmody is heartbroken for her daughter, even as she’s desperate to get Alex’s life back on track. The Birches, a boarding school in New Hampshire, promises to do just that, yet Alex refuses to go. But when Meg finds a bag of pills hidden in the house, she makes a fateful call to a transporter whose company specializes in shuttling troubled teens to places like The Birches, under strict supervision. Meg knows Alex will feel betrayed—as will her estranged husband, who knows nothing of Meg’s plans for their daughter.

When the transport goes wrong—and Alex goes missing—Meg must face the consequences of her decision and her deception. But the hunt for Alex reveals that Meg is not the only one keeping secrets.

I feel like I’ve read way too many books over the past couple of years involving teenagers in car accidents, although sadly it’s a reality for far too many people. Despite the somewhat overdone plot of secrets around an accident, I did appreciate a lot of new factors to the storyline and the lesson that no one individual can blame themselves when things like this happen.



Although the story had some interesting plot twists and characters, I did feel that the author included too many moving pieces and characters that weren’t able to be fully developed in the span of the novel and could have cut out some plot lines to better develop others. If you’re looking for a book to keep you entertained while traveling, this would be a good pick, but I wouldn’t describe it as a “must read.”
