Contains Spoilers I really liked this book. But it was slow and nothing really happened between Called and Maggie till the end. Other than that I liked and will probably read it again. Read full review

User Review  - Kristi Calvery - Goodreads

This is an excellent book for teens. I teach a reading class, and they love getting the guy and girl perspective, and it is a great tool to talk about the consequences of drinking and driving. Read full review
