I love this book. It's a great example of how moving and powerful contemporary YA fiction can be. The characters are complex and realistic, flawed but beautiful. I like how present Haylee is on every single page, even though she's gone. Through both Haylee's death and the actions of the other characters, you see how the choices you make impact everyone around you.
While this is at times a really sad book, it's also a book about hope and love and redemption and healing. It's well worth the read! I recommend this to anyone who enjoys Sarah Dessen (The Moon and More) or John Green (The Fault in Our Stars).
I have a particular interest in the subject matter because of a niece who is struggling with some of the same issues--only in her case, her parents are doing all the right things to help her recover. Without giving away too much about the story, I think this book pretty accurately portrays how often normal people opt for maintaining "normalcy" when faced with the prospect of upending their lives to confront and resolve serious problems. When things go wrong with us or our children, burying or ignoring the consequences can turn an already tragic circumstance into more permanent devastation.
The subject matter is heavy on multiple levels, and it certainly wasn't an easy read in that regard. What I like about Patterson's writing (the two books I've read so far) is that she doesn't hide the fact that sometimes everything isn't fine. She acknowledges that there is danger in the world and there are consequences to our actions (things teens might need to be reminded of here and there), yet she tackles these issues in a way that is neither preachy or overbearing, and in a way that is appropriate for the intended audience.
