Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;andlt;bigandgt;Dear anyone who cared about Cameron,andlt;/bigandgt;andlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; I was the driver of the "other" car. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The police and my mother and my father and plenty of people are saying that I didn't kill her. But I know I did. That's what her parents must believe. And my brother, Jack. He always sees what's true. I want to tell him how sorry I am about the accident. I want to say a lot of things to him and to everybody — like how Cameron was smart and beautiful and kind in a way that isn't all that common in high school. Like how much Jack loved her and how sometimes I can hear him crying through the wall at night. I want to say how bad everything can get. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In one split second. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Upside down and shattered. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Just like that. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;bandgt;andlt;bigandgt;Wrecked.andlt;/bigandgt;andlt;/bandgt;

A young adult book that should be required reading for all youth. This is a story of how life can and does change, irreversibly, in an instant. As one who knows, E.R. Frank portrays the horrific and sad aftermath of sudden death, and its far reaching effect, with honesty and truth. This is the truth that the invincible youth of this world do not readily accept, as it relates to them. I repeat - A must read!
