Description


Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad has been canceled. After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb's free... if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as ""criminal"" and ""freak."" Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It's a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.
