Publisher Description

Girl in Pieces meets The Way I Used to Be in this poignant and thought-provoking novel about a girl who must overcome her survivor's guilt after a fellow classmate is brutally murdered.

I was one of five. The five girls Kyle texted that day. The girls it could have been. Only Jamie--beautiful, saintly Jamie--was kind enough to respond. And it got her killed.

On the eve of Kyle's sentencing a year after Jamie's death, all the other "chosen ones" are coping in various ways. But our tenacious narrator is full of anger, stuck somewhere between the horrifying past and the unknown future as she tries to piece together why she gets to live, while Jamie is dead.

Now she finds herself drawn to Charlie, Jamie's boyfriend--knowing all the while that their relationship will always be haunted by what-ifs and why-nots. Is hope possible in the face of such violence? Is forgiveness? How do you go on living when you know it could have been you instead?

I’ve read many books and I truly believe this one made me rethink some things in my life. The first few pages are what initially got me hooked. I don’t judge books by covers, but I do judge them by the first pages. The main character is funny, good playful sense of humor, she isn’t annoying, she’s easy to relate to. The book also wasn’t written in too much of a complicated manner. It was easy to follow and yes predictable at times, but overall the story felt like it was finished and written well with something to take away from it. The love story wasn’t over done or over sexual as it is in a lot of books which I really enjoyed. It also wasn’t cliche and cringey. I very much enjoyed reading this book :)
