A few of the Booktini gals are Moms of teenagers and this was a tough read for them. The story is one of tragedy, guilt and redemption and how the events of one night can change lives forever. For the reader it begs the question "what would you do?" We all discussed what we would have done, but we all questioned whether it would be the right choice. As a parent, you want to teach your children to do the right thing, but realistically you know they aren't always going to make good choices. How do you keep them safe? How do you forgive? How do you go on?
We loved all the characters and I think Lexi was every one's favorite. What an amazing girl! We also recommend this book to all the moms and teenagers out there. It's a great book that will lend itself to some great discussions. I'd really love to hear a review of the book from a teenager's perspective.
Special thanks to Kristin Hannah for this fantastic book club contest!
Next month we will be discussing The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
