Alexis Bass’s heartbreakingly beautiful second novel is a tale of love, loss, and learning to forgive.

Look to the left, look to the right. We’re all going to die. But someone has to do it first. So who’s it going to be?

Tragedy struck Amanda Tart’s town a year and a half ago when a sophomore girl was killed in a car accident on graduation night. Amanda’s brother, Jonathan, was behind the wheel and too drunk to drive. He’s spent the past year in prison and has cut off all ties. But now Jonathan is coming home. Just as Amanda’s trying to figure out what that means for her family and herself, she’s paired up for a school project with Henry Crane—a former crush, and brother of Jonathan’s ex-girlfriend, who survived the crash with horrible injuries.

Everyone is still incredibly damaged by the events of that night. Can Amanda and Henry finally begin to heal what’s broken and find some peace?

You get the call/letter/email that you're going to be published. Describe the next five minutes.

When I got the call from my agent letting me know we had our first offer on my debut novel, I was at work. It was lucky that I had my cell phone handy, although-who was I kidding? I knew editors were reading my book, I basically always had my cell phone handy. When I saw the number had a New York City area code, I decided to step outside to take the call. And boy, am I glad I did.

Minute 1: shock and silence and awe.
Minute 2: screaming *on the inside*! Laughing! Tears of happiness!
Minute 3: Stringing together as many "thank you's" as I can get out in one breath.
Minute 4: Hopping up and down. *yes, in public*
Minute 5: Another Thank You, and then a deep breath.
