@oblongirl's pick of the month...
by Amy Zhang
One cold fall day, high school junior Liz Emerson steers her car into a tree.
This haunting and heartbreaking story is told by a surprising and unexpected
narrator and unfolds in nonlinear flashbacks even as Liz's friends, foes, and
family gather at the hospital and Liz clings to life.
This riveting debut will appeal to fans of Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver, and
13 Reasons Why, by Jay Asher.
