After narrowly escaping death, a teen struggles to come to terms with her guilt over the classmate who was raped and murdered instead.
Kyle texted five girls that day. Only Jamie was kind enough to respond. And it got her killed. On the eve of Kyle's sentencing a year after Jamie's death, all the other "chosen ones" are coping in various ways. But the unnamed narrator is full of anger, stuck somewhere between the horrifying past and the unknown future. She tries to piece together why she gets to live, while Jamie is dead. Drawn to Charlie, Jamie's boyfriend-- knowing their relationship will always be haunted by what-ifs and why-nots-- can she find hope or forgiveness in the face of such violence? How do you go on living when you know it could have been you instead? -- adapted from Goodreads.com info
