Sometimes one mistake can change everything.
Emily doesn’t know why she froze. Or why Lucas did too. Afterward, she thought of different ways to rationalize it. But the truth is, they could have helped Belinda, and they didn’t. It’s a mistake they’ll both have to live with.
Sometimes doing nothing is the only way to cope.
Belinda doesn’t want to talk about what happened. Because when she does, it feels like it’s happening all over again.
Sometimes good can come from bad.
Emily and Lucas’s punishment is community service at a center for people with disabilities. People like Belinda. Soon they feel like maybe they’re starting to make a real difference. Like they would be able to do the right thing if they could do that night all over again. Like they could help not only those at the center but also each other.
But when Belinda returns to school, Emily and Lucas have to figure out if they can do anything that will actually help the one person they hurt most.
*i would like to thank HARPER COLLINS INTERNATIONAL for sending me AN ARC OF THIS book. this doesn’t affect nor influence my review.*
Let me just tell you that this line made me weep deep inside. How true is this? How genuine is this line? This line sounds cliché to some people but the thought is on point. It is ALWAYS on point!
I’ll give you enough reasons on why you should read and buy this book when it comes out.
These were some of most heart-touching lines from this book:
“You deserve love as much as anyone else.”
“Sometimes what I do when I’m excited like this is close my eyes and imagine I’m the different parts of it.”
“You have good instincts and you’re a nicer person than I ever expected you’d be.”
