In the latest offering from Zentner, the Morris award-winning author of the Serpent King (2016), 17-year-old Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal car crash killing his best friends Mars, Eli, and Blake. After the accident, he finds himself virtually friendless, overwhelmed by guilt and suffering from debilitating panic attacks. It seems the whole town wants Carver prosecuted including Mars’ father a judge, who wants to charge him with negligent homicide. After Blake’s grandmother asks him to spend a day sharing memories, soon the other families are asking for their own goodbye day with Carver. But he’s unsure of their motives and worries that his attempt to find closure will bring him to the breaking point and even worse—prison!
