In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck…
I had serious doubts about this book. I don’t like what I call problem novels and I think YA fiction is inundated with them. However, I was completely wrong about this book. I am not sure how the author took what was a horrible premise and made something positive out of it, but she managed it.
This is not a paranormal book. Mia is not a ghost. She is, however, able to see what is going on with everyone around her while her body is in a coma.
There are a number of flashbacks in the story which explain her relationships with her friends and family. This is not a story about a girl with a lot of problems prior to the accident. It is the story of a girl who must decide if she can survive the accident.
