Tall, awkward Amy feels unloved by her parents, who are too smitten with each other to pay her any attention. Along with her beautiful, fearless, and free-spirited friend Julia, Amy turns to drinking and casual sex to feel loved.
After a devastating car crash leaves Julia dead and Amy only slightly injured, Amy goes into rehab. There, a therapist gives her a journal, which Amy uses to write letters to Julia, each dated with the number of days after Julia’s death.

I don't know where to begin. This was a fabulous book! You can feel the pain and guilt Amy is going thru from the first couple of pages and all thru the book. Thank goodness I never lost a friend when I was in highschool and had to feel like it was my fault but I could still relate to how she was feeling on other levels like an outcast and everybody talking about you and pointing fingers and then the ones who weren't doing that just totally acted like you weren't there which hurts just as much.

Amy slowly begins to find herself again with the help of a former friend, Caro, and two other classmates Mel and Patrick and oh yea Patrick has a secret crush on her but he has some healing issues of his own to work thru.

I just fell in love with Patrick and my heart broke for Amy. I rooted for the both of them to find peace and happiness even if not with each other.
