Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic--one of opportunities and chances. Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened. For what she let happen. With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends' entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?… (mer)

This is going to be a bit spoileriffic because some of the issues I had need to be a bit spoileriffic.

Well it's pretty obvious that there was an accident, the story opens with our heroiine in hospital, in pain. She's the only survivor of a car crash and she has to deal with her survivor guilt and the fact that she was sober in a car full of not-sober people. At no stage does someone sit her down and say that yes, you got into a car with people not completely sober, but that you asked if the driver was okay and while he stumbled, people stumble. You asked. They reassured, the guilt lies more with them than you. No future suggestion list was drawn up. No questions of what would have happened if she had opted out? There was a moment of her being reassured that she couldn't have overwhelmed the driver to take the keys off him but overall she accepts the burden of guilt and no-one really tries to relieve her of it and offer her strategies of what to do if it ever happened again. The parents in whose house the party was also don't seem to be doing anything about future issues other than angsting. A key confiscation program at underage parties (where the parents cleverly decided that drinking under their supervision instead of drinking behind their backs was a good idea, but a lockup for keys would have been a good idea.

It's probably my age, but this presented the problem without presenting solutions and I had issues with that. Even us cynical adults need strategies on how to resist getting into cars with people who aren't completely sober. It's a messy topic and while it's not badly handled in this book, it could be better. ( )

MAY CONTAIN SOME SMALL SPOILERS.

What was the story about?
The story is about a girl who suffers a big
change in her life, what happened before, during and after that and how she and
everyone around her deals with what is going on.

Why did I want to read the book?
Because I wanted to read something lighter before reading El vagón de Los huérfanos by Pam Jenoff.

Are the characters credible/relatable?
Some of them, but they can get in your nerves too.

Did I like the book?
Yes, I enjoyed it, it wasn’t a great book but I did enjoy most of it.

What I felt while reading the book? Was it what I expected?
I felt I was living what the main character was living. For
that part, the book was good, it can make you feel every single thing they are
telling you. No, it wasn’t what I was expecting, I was expecting something
light, fluffy easy to read, a lot of romance that made me roll my eyes, but it
was the opposite of that is a really hard book to get through.

Favorite part/character/quote:
The reveal of a "secret". Favorite character: Sebastian.

Least favorite part/character:
The main plot of the story, not because it was bad, but because it breaks your heart.

Talk about the writing style (engaging, boring, delightful, easy, hard, inspiring, etc.)
Is easy to read because there is no use of new words or really hard words to understand, but because of the story is hard too.

Would I change something?
The development of the main character, I didn’t feel like she grew up chapter by chapter, I felt she did just at the final chapter and it would have been really nice watching her grow with every chapter that has the book. Another thing I would change is the fact that the book is really long for the story, I think the author draws the story around when it could have been from 5 to 10 chapters shorter with the same outcome.

Would I recommend this book? To what type of person?
I think I wouldn’t recommend this book to everyone, but if you can deal with loss, depression, hard situations that make you change your way of living or thinking, then yes, read it. But have in mind that is not the best book out there with these plots. And the audiobook is good, so if you prefer to listen to it, as I did, then do it, is not full cast but the narrator is not that bad. ( )

I liked the start of it.

Yep, and that was about it.

I thought the start was really good, but once I hit the middle things started going downhill for me. I loved the romance at the start, but the rest of the book was only okay. ( )

Lena is in love with her best friend Sebastian. She's afraid to let him know how he feels, even though everyone and their mother knows. As I read through the first half of the book, I thought "someone has to die because this is absolutely awful." Then 4 people die and the book finally gets a little bit interesting. I despised that all of Lena's problems came from not vocalizing things that everyone already knew. This was almost a DNF for me, but I powered through it. I liked the character's transformation in the last quarter of the book, so that bumped it up to a 2 for me. ( )
