This is a powerful and moving story of mistakes and forgiveness. It makes you examine your own life to see if any forgiveness is due. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. A great read!

This is my first experience with the reading of a book by Kristin Hannah. The book kept me interested all the way through, but I found it very depressing most of the time. Life is not always a happy party though, and a lot of issues covered in this book were very serious issues that parents of teenagers might find helpful. One review mentioned that it read like a Young Adult book, but I disagree...although teenagers might gain some insight by reading it. It reminded me of one of my favorite authors, Jodi Picoult who tends to write about controversial issues, and I intend on reading more books by Ms. Hannah in the future.

OMG I couldn't even put this down. I don't own this book but it is still on my wish list and I'll keep it there so I can own it for my library. You will laugh and cry when reading this book. Also want to mention that it is a clean book for those looking for clean.

A very powerful story about mistakes, and grief, and forgiveness. Never feels rushed, just moves through the characters' lives at their own pace. Good page turner.

Several of the characters in this novel did not ring true for me. The over protective mother, Jude Farraday, was especially so. In addition, she was unlikable. The most interesting and, hence, the most realistic was Lexi Baill. Her longing to belong, to have popular friends, to be able to go to the college of her choice are reminiscent of my own high school days. In addition, I was most uncomfortable about the choice to send Lexi to prison for the accident. Others may enjoy this read. I was disappointed.

I LOVED this book! It was inspiring, fun, happy, and heartbreaking. The story line was unique, and the characters were well-developed. I felt like I knew them personally. I was sad to reach the last page, even though the ending was perfect. This is a must-read!

This was my first time reading this author's work, and she's not my style. I don't think she has a convincing voice. I'm sure a Kristin Hannah fan would love the book though.

I read this book and didn't get what the big deal was. I thought there were a lot of cliches, stereotypes, and it was too predictable for my tastes. The author is a good wordsmith, that's true. I found the characters mostly uninteresting or annoying.

This is a great story of love,regret,sorrow,forgiveness. How many of us have needed to give one or all of these or receive one or all of these? It's a very good growth book. I can't repost it yet since my husband has to listen to this audio book also. You will laugh and cry so be prepared.

This book was about so many things including live, loss and forgiveness. I really enjoyed being taken along on this high schooler's journey through some very rough times.
