Synopsis:

Whyd I do it? I suppose its the only question that really matters.

Seventeen-year-old Crow will stop at nothing to protect her younger sister—even if it costs her her own life. But then shes given a chance to come back and make things right. There are a few catches, though. First, she wont come back as herself. And before she can set things straight, shell have to figure out whats what—and things arent exactly as clear-cut as she remembered.

Powerful and hard-hitting, this is a compelling story about what it means to live your life—for your own sake—from an award-winning author.
