The plot of this book is one I've seen many many times in youth fiction Natalie's beloved older sister is rendered comatose in a car accident; the rest of the family is left behind to cope But Jocelyn handles this story with such deft characterization and with intense humanity that it's a significant cut above the rest None of the characters are particularly noble or tragic; they are simply stumbling through the unbelievable trying to come to terms with grief Natalie is an incredibly believable teen the way she is rendered helpless in reaction to her parents' nearly all encompassing grief how she is initially sickened by the sight of her sister in the hospital and the encroaching feeling of guilt when she realizes that like it or not her life is continuing without her sister I really enjoyed Jocelyn's other novel the oft overlooked How It Happened in Peach Hill I'm hoping that this book will find a greater readership but with is so so cover design and smarmy jacketflap copy the world can change in a heartbeat bleh I'm afraid it will be overlooked as well Here's crossing my fingers

Personal ResponseI really enjoyed reading this book and can not relate to it very well I like that the character is my age and has a sister but her sister is older and mine is younger I have not had a family member get into an accident and get into the situation that she did and I hope I never am in her place I liked that right when you thought you were getting bored of reading it a plot twist came in so it kept you reading I think that the reason for Nat's sister breaking up with Joe boy is not a good one at all and if she wouldn't have gone over to his house that night then she wouldn't have gotten into an accident My favorite part was in the beginning all of Nat's friends go pool hopping because it sounds like something the kids who live around me would doSummaryNat is a teen girl who has an older sister Claire that is going to go to college in a month Nat has a crush on Zack who is in a year older than Nat a year younger than Claire Nat Zack Carson Audrey and a few other friends decide to go pool hoping one nightjumping into other people's pools illegally Claire decides to tag along this time because she decided you only live once so why not The next night Claire talks to Nat and tells her she is going to go break up with her boyfriend because she doesn't want to date him while she's gone Nat doesn't like this idea but doesn't stop her and goes to hang out with her friends When she comes back home her mom is sitting at the table and her dad is pacing around the room; Claire is no where to be seen They tell her that Claire has been hit by a car when running back home from the breakup She is in serious condition and is in trouble of dying They go to the hospital and when they see Claire she is bloated with fluids there are many tubes going into her and she has a large gash on her head As time goes by and familyfriends come to give the family food and Claire stays in a coma Nat continues to hang out with her friends and try to carry on with life Nat and Zack start getting to really know each other and end up kissing Claire is examined and the doctors say she is brain dead In the end the family decides to pull the plug Many weeks later it would have been Claire's birthday so Nat and her friends decide to go pool hoping in her memoryRecommendationI recommend this book to sixth through ninth graders because it's an easy read yet it has a good concept behind it There are some concepts that are slightly difficult and there is a seriousness behind the story If you like drama and problem solving then you would enjoy this book I give this book a four out of five stars because it was a good book but sometimes it repeats events
