 Told from three diverse points of view, this story of life and love after loss is one Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give, calls a "stunning, heart-wrenching look at grief that will stay with you long after you put it down." 


For the first time ever, I feel grateful for how many selfies you took, and I feel bad that I always teased you about being conceited. If I didn’t have hundreds of digital squares with you in them, I’m not sure how I’d remember to breathe. 


I liked the way he tried so hard to fix everything: leaky faucets, hurt feelings, his math grade. But I don’t think I knew that I liked him, at least not for sure, until he kissed me the first time. 


It’s weird to find out that Sasha had secrets, even from Mom— even from me. But as I look in the rearview mirror at Callie, who’s twisting her brown hair around her finger and looking through the window, I think maybe there are unknown parts of everyone. We’re all so much more than we seem.
