Kyle French survived the car crash that killed his parents, leaving him a bit battered and processing his emotions toward the entire situation. As his elder sister Cassie comes home to help manage the necessary arrangements, the dynamic between twenty year old Kyle and his newly eighteen year old sister is affected by the pseudo-mom presence of Cassie, who isn't as closely attuned to their lives being five years older than Kyle and living in London. As each of the children deal with the grief of losing their parents and cope with their new situation, they gradually develop and grow into more fully realized adults from the new experiences the unfortunate accident afforded them.
Emotionally heavy, the narrative rather intricately explores how people, particularly young, headstrong people, deal with grieving and moving on from the untimely demise of a parent. The characters were well-realized and developed, with flaws that allowed them to learn and grow as people. Poignant moments were spread throughout the text as Kyle tried to go about his life as normal and realized how his parents were deeply involved in particular actions, such as Christmas shopping, which Kyle did with his father and allowed them to bond. I found it strange that the clairvoyant aspect to Kyle's mother that was highlighted in the book's synopsis wasn't as significant to the narrative as its presence in the synopsis would indicate it would be, but instead added some fuel late in the game for evoking guilt and deeper contemplation of the accident.
It deals with a family where three siblings are devastated by the loss of both parents in a car accident. The son, Kyle, was also in the car when it happened and we learn bits and pieces as the story progresses how it came to be and the guilt he suffers. Each of the young adults handles their grief differently.
The story is most focused on Kyle and his heart-wrenching battle with himself in trying to move forward when he wishes at times, that he had died, too. How do you face the first holidays when you just want to curl up in a dark place? How do you Christmas shop for two sisters when your father was your shopping buddy? How do you keep on a happy face when you are dying inside?
All the characters are relatable, even minor ones have traits you can picture in your mind, right down to the dog, Wanda.
I loved this book and didn't want to put it down. Very well done. When it can make me feel how the characters were feeling, I think that is the highest compliment. I didn't want it to end and wonder if a sequel might be possible?
