Shelby can’t forgive herself. After all, she was driving. She was the one who slid on the ice and wrecked the car. She was the one who should be in a coma instead of her best friend. Shelby was in the ER for only one night, but she was in the psych hospital for three months. Shelby withdrew from the world, shaved her head, and stayed high on pot. The only person she could talk to was Ben, who supplied the pot.
This is a beautiful story of a greatly troubled teen’s gradual reconnection with life. It was an emotional journey, sprinkled with odd and loveable characters, tragic, moving and sometimes funny. I highly recommend.
