But when a terrible accident occurs, Scotty feels responsible for the loss of someone she hardly knew, and the world goes wrong. She cannot tell what is a dream and what is real.

"Heart-rending yet hopeful as well as fully, messily real, this novel will please fans of other authors who write emotionally intense, character-driven stories, such as Coe Booth, John Green, or Jacqueline Woodson."
